Camping at North Cape
Are you a hopeless romantic? Then witnessing the midnight sun in stunning Norway could just be the trip for you. Our ambassador from Germany, Elmar Reckmann has just realized his dream of touring Europe all the way up to North Cape in a VW minivan. Still on the road in Norway, Elmar is sharing with us his impressions and tips in this collection.
It took me two years to realize my dream. After some search I finally found my VW minivan and started the long planned trip to the North Cape. It was only one week left to see the midnight sun that ends on the 29th of July, so I really had to hurry up to reach the North Cape.
The trip was really amazing and I passed so many different landscapes on the 3,500 km journey. After two days I was already behind my daily goal, but the last day trip was better than expected, and I arrived at the North Cape on time.
Beautiful sunny weather was waiting for me and I got one of the best parking lots in the first row. The midnight sun was just awesome as I had the clearest view on the horizon. Feels a bit cosy when the sun will not go down, and I was able to get used to the daylight during the nights since I passed the Arctic circle.
The first step was taken and from now on my vacation can really start. I have four weeks time to drive back home through the amazing nature of Norway with all the beautiful fjords, the huge mountains, wonderful people and all the experiences I collected so far. This trip will definitely stay forever in my memories…
