North Cape tour

In 2001 we rented a motorhome and made a tour through Scandinavia with the North Cape as destination. We did this together with our neighbors. On our way to the North Cape we mainly drove through Sweden and Finland. On our way back mainly along the coast of Norway. It was a 7400 kilometer tour in 3,5 weeks, but through wonderful sceneries.

North Cape, Norway. Unofficially seen as the northernmost point of Europe.

 

Conclusion

In 3,5 weeks we drove about 7400km. A long trip, so we almost daily had to drive hundreds of kilometers. Despite this we enjoyed our time in the motorhome and saw a lot of Scandinavia. Great cities like Copenhagen and Stockholm that we certainly will visit again in the future! Different landscapes like the hills with farming land in Denmark, the forests in Sweden and Finland and the wonderful coast of Norway with fjords. Furthermore nice attractions like Legoland and Sapmi Park. And of course special places like the Arctic Circle and North Cape, unofficially seen as the northernmost point of Europe.

Also camping and staying on campsites was new for us. Of course you have less privacy then when you rent a private home, but we had cozy times at the campsites. We stayed at basic campsites, but also on luxury campsites. Read here on which campsites we stayed in Scandinavia.

Furthermore we had great weather with at least 25 degrees and sunny weather until Stockholm in the first week. At the end a lot of rain, mainly along the coast in Norway. A pity, but you know that that can happen in coastal areas. Nonetheless a wonderful tour through countries that we definitely will visit again!

      Hello Rutika,

      Thank you for your mail!I’m not a tour agency, but just someone who likes to travel with friends or family. So I can’t book tours for groups, but perhaps I can help you with your itinerary. Can you tell me how many days you plan to stay in Sweden? And are you thinking about renting a car or traveling around by bus/public transport?

      Best regards,
      Rob
