North Cape or Nordkapp (nōr´käp), promontory, rising steeply c.1,000 ft (300 m) from the Arctic Ocean, near but not at the north end of Magerøya island, Finnmark co., N Norway. Although Magerøya is separated by a narrow channel from the mainland, North Cape, at lat. 71°10′N, is considered to be the northernmost important point of the European continent. The northernmost point actually situated on the mainland is Cape Nordkyn. The North Cape is a traditional stop for tourist steamers.
