about

North Cape sits on the edge of Europe, at the top of Norway. Looking out from the cliffs there is only the North Pole beyond. For hundreds of years these cliffs have sparked adventure and the imagination, as explorers searched for mythical passageways to China or struck out towards the pole, and locals and foreigners saw witches, bad omens, curses and the gates to hell beyond the cliffs and in the Northern Lights.

John King provided a re-visioning of the existing Nordkapp tourist destination on these cliffs. A theatre and exhibit allowed a look beyond the cliffs into the visions and myths inspired by this remote location, while a glass floored viewing platform allowed guest to literally step off the edge of the world.
