Address: Fiskeriveien 4D, 9750 Honningsvåg

Around 2.5 km east of the Nordkapp plateau are the remains of buildings and a quay from WWII. This was the original landing site for the tourist ships before the Nordkapp road opened in 1956.

Today, you can still climb up the 307 metres on what remains of the around 1,008 steps created in the 1880s. The Horn is an outstanding piece of rock shaped like a horn. Pre-Christianity, the Horn was a holy site for the Sami population on Magerøya island, and was considered to be the home of Gods. The Horn can only be seen properly from a distance.
