If you go to Nordkapp in May you must be prepared for some rather Cold and artic conditions. Today - 16. april the town of Honningsvåg - the nearest town of Nordkapp still has more than 100 cm of snow on the ground. So if youre going there in one month - pack a lot of warm clothes and hope you have grip heaters on your motorbike....

Not all camping sites will have opend for the summer but some will.

Anyhow - it isnt impossible, just be prepared for some cold tempratures.
The light is awesome in Northern Norway in late may and no darkness at all. Daylight 24/7 and if youre Lucky a little sun as well.

Ensjoy Your trip

Thank you for your input. I'm looking forward to seeing the light. Shame I won't see northern lights but then wouldn't be able to ride there! The cold isn't a problem. Just hope some of the roads are open!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
