    ALWAYS IN SUMMER CARRY MOSQUITO REPELLANT

    by DennyP Written Mar 30, 2012

    BODO
    .. Travelling anywhere up here in Northern Norway or LLapland ALWAYS in the summertime carry and use a strong mosquito and insect repellant...The mosquitos up here are the biggest that you will ever see!!! They are not only a real pest but mosquitos carry many forms of viruses.. In the evenings (the worst time) when "mossie's "are most active cover up with long sleeves and long pants .Make sure that all exposed bare skin is covered with a good strong mosquito repellant to be on the safe side..

    BEWARE ..These are bad news.. ALWAYS CARRY & USE A STRONG MOSQUITO REPELLANT.

    Stepping up the Zig-Zag-path

    by globetrott Updated May 28, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stepping up the Zig-Zag-path is easy and not very exhausting, but at some places you really have to be very careful, where to step to and I would not recommend elderly people to take that path. For them one of the bustours that are organized by the cruiseships might be better, they take you the easy way to these viewpoints

    Reindeers

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Along the road toward Hammerfest is very common to see wild reindeers to cross the road. It is a great opportunity to have a photo, but pay attention with the cars because they cross the road suddently!!!

    Beware of the reindeers

    by Gili_S Updated Apr 4, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the land of the reindeers, they are everywhere, so, beware of the reindeers while driving on the roads, in the fog it is very difficult to spot them and you dont really want to do the car cleaning afterwards.

    Snow Barriers

    by Gili_S Written Dec 23, 2007

    Those are examples of the snow barriers spread around the mountain above the city, just in case of a snow avalanche, I wonder about the history of avalanches in Hammerfest.
