Knivskjelodden in Norway is the northernmost point of mainland Europe, located just a few kilometers west of North Cape. Technically both North Cape and Knivskjelodden are on an island which is connected to the real mainland by a tunnel. So basically Knivskjelodden is as far as you can drive north in Europe. That day in June 2003 the peninsula was covered in a single cloud. We hiked there around midnight to see the sun go down until it almost touched the horizon before it slowly started to rise again.
