During 2010–2011, the Norwegian Trekking Association (DNT) created a marked hiking trail from Nordkapp to Kautokeino. Also following the Nordkalottleden Trail and Grensesømmen, this extended the E1 all the way to the North Cape. The Nordkalottleden Trail (Kautokeino-Treriksrøysa–Abisko–Sulitjelma) and Grensesømmen (Sulitjelma-Røssvatnet-Børgefjell–Gressåmoen–Sylan-Grövelsjön) cross the Norwegian-Finnish and Norwegian-Swedish border several times. The route between Nordkapp and Grövelsjön does in part go in very remote areas with very few shelters and very little service available. Parts of the path are unmarked so that the hikers need to find their own route.
On June 4, 2013, Innovasjon Norge and Norwegian Trekking Association marked the Norwegian part of the path officially opened. The path stretches 2.105 km, and holds 60.000 waymarks on either cairns or tree stems all the way, except through Børgefjell National Park; regulations for Børgefjell National Park prohibits waymarks. The Børgefjell section is only marked on maps. This is also valid for the next section; from the southern tip of Børgefjell National Park in Nord-Trøndelag to Sætertjønnhytta in Steinkjer there are no waymarks by the desire of the Sami people and other considerations.
