Norway: Midnight Sun seen from the North Cape

On Saturday I got a postcard from Norway.

It shows the midnight sun seen from the North Cape. The North Cape is a cape on the northern coast of the island of Magerøya in Northern Norway. It is the point where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Arctic Ocean. Often it is inaccurately referred to as the northernmost point of Europe. Although this is not true, it is still the northernmost point in Europe that can be accessed by car. The midnight sun can be seen there from the 14th May to the 31st July. It is a popular tourist destination.

With a matching stamp:
Personalised Stamp "The midnight sun seen from the North Cape"
with a special postmark from the North Cape

Thank You very much Svea!
