North Cape cliff, North Cape

  •  /  km From You
Overview

The North Cape cliff has long been a popular and important navigation mark for shipping traffic in the north. In 1553, an English expedition set sail under the command of commander Richard Chancellor to find the North-East passage to China.

They did not succeed but the old sea charts after this expedition are the first to mention the name, North Cape. North Cape is at 307 metres above sea level, with the highest point inside the North Cape hall, at 309 metres above sea level. The sea cliff dates back 500-600 million years and consists of schist, sandstone, quartzite and mica schist.
