NO-48902

Not so long ago i've received an official from Finland decipting the midnight sun in Lapland and now i got this one, also with the midnight sun, in Nordkaap, Norway.

NO-48902, sent by Damla.
Nordkapp (or North Cape in English) is located in Finnmark county, Norway.
North Cape rises a proud and mighty 308 meters above the Barents Sea. North Cape is the last point before the sea ice in the north.
Some 200,000 tourists visit this place annually, some to experience the midnight sun.
The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon which means that the sun does not set during the summer months. In other words, given fair weather, you can see the sun for a continuous 24 hours. The duration of the midnight sun depends on how far north you are and at the North Cape you can see the sun from 14 May to 29 July.
