This was our last month in Norway. From Tromsø we continued to drive north: via a quick detour through Finland, we came through Kautokeino, visited the northern end of Norway, and waved a “Hello” to Russia in Kirkenes before heading back south again.
The landscape was uniquely beautiful: mostly empty landscape with lots of bushes, lakes and hills. The autumn colours and the low sun made for a very picturesque and colourful scenery.
I’ll start of with a few leftover shots from Tromsø.
Tromsø’s Arctic Cathedral
The photographer inside me
Bought an Omnia oven. Good decision!
After a little search we found batteries that fit and were kind of ok for the job. At the double of German prices though.
Unique old-school museum
Left the city. Back into nature again.
Morning coffee with morning sun
Popular spot close to the Finnish border
We went for a walk and marvelled at the autumn colours
Spent a few nights at this very spot in northern Finnland on our way towards Kautokeino (Norway).
It was time for some more thorough cleaning.
Kautokeino. Moonrise. Digital.
And then: some proper northern lights for the first time!
Came across some animal remains
Typical norwegian sight
Where bread-ends go to die
Visited this unique house/shop/museum in Kautekoino
Autumn colours again
Further north. Middle of nowhere. Popular walking track to a canyon.
We hiked to the canyon too, of course.
Crossed a few streams. In colour…
…and black and white.
I was mainly fascinated by these tree formations.
I believe these were direction signs for snow mobiles in the snowy season
Aaaand…back to driving through the yellow-orange-red landscape again.
Or b&w? Anyhow, we had some great spots to wake up to!
That’s the lighthouse at Gamvik/Slettnes in the very north of Norway. Another nice place where we spent a couple of days.
Northern lights plus moon and ocean. Magic!
Getting rid and filling up
A rare sight
We were glad we had this cover. Keeps the cockpit way warmer in the cold!
A dog I met (incl. its owner) right at the border to Russia.
He also had a Moose: dead, cut to pieces and wrapped in plastic.
Reindeers on the way back south
Last camping spot in Norway
