reindeers on the road Nordkapp_640x320

Along the road

The distances between us are great, but fortunately the roads are good. In some places, the road can be narrow, and in the summer you may find that reindeer blocks the road. When you drive to us, you pass the subsea car tunnel Nordkapptunellen. The tunnel goes under Magerøysundet between the mainland and Magerøya. It is 6,875 meters long and runs down to 212 meters below sea level. The tunnel was opened in 1999. The largest increase in the tunnel is 10%. It is free to drive through the tunnel.

The tunnel has cold debris at each end that keeps the cold out in winter, to avoid ice formation in the rock walls. These ports open automatically when a car is approaching. In the summer the ports are always open. In total there are four tunnels to pass from Olderfjorden to Nordkapp Camping. During the winter, columns can be set up if large amounts of snow create problems for driving.
