Talk about the weather

We're on our way to Mehamn. It's very cloudy and colder than expected. Rain slowly starts to fall. We will stop for today. Looking for a hot meal and a cold beer in our mobile home.


We're at Gamvik, which once had a booming fishing industry, like all the other villages around here.

Nordkyn Peninsula

We're on the Nordkyn Peninsula. Here is the northernmost point of mainland Europe, called Cape Nordkyn, or Kinarodden. The tundra landscape looks a bit like from another planet, huge formations of stone and very low arctic vegetation. The road we took to get here looked brand new, much better than any highway we encountered on our trips so far.

Bright night

This night is very bright, the moon is still quite full and reflects in the nearby waters, lightening up the scenery.

Counting sheeps

It's getting dark. When driving in this area you share the road with flocks of sheep that seem to be on their way home. The elder ones are wearing bells and are usually walking at the outer ends of the flocks. They get a little bit mixed up when a camping car drives by.

Tana Bridge

Tana Bridge in the small village of Tana Bru is 220 m long and crosses the Tana River which is famous among salmon fishers. Its predecessor was destroyed during WWII in 1944 by the Germans. There is a 12m fishing rod installed which is made from the metal of the old bridge.

Fish farm

The facility in this beautiful bay appears like a fish farm.
