    Trolls

    Trolls - you will find them all over Norway
    and one of them is waiting for you inside the Nordkapphallen, posing patiently for the tourists photos.
    Trolls are living out in the woods and they are a lot smaller than the one here in my photos. The best place to meet the trolls are the souvenirshops all over norway, and there are also lots of troll-books and stories for children about trolls.
    Trollstiegen is a famous mountain-passroad close to Geiranger !

    Sami-tents

    Sami-tents are quite interesting
    most of them are round and they had a stove inside. Just imagine living there all year long in summer and winter and take these tents down, pack them and build them the other day again at a place that has enough grass for the rendeer-herds. These tourist-Sami are certainly living in a real flat closeby and come to their shop only for the tourists.
    Take a look inside the tents, they are set up there for the tourists only !

    Sami-culture at the Nordkapp

    The Sami are living as nomads
    in the north of europe
    and on the way to Nordkapp you will see some Sami living next to the road togeather with their herds of reindeers.More and more of them obviously rather prefer to work as "tourist-attractions" , showing their tents and a single reindeer to the tourists going to the Northcape. We had a stop there of half an hour to take a look around, take photos and do some shopping in their Sami-souvenirshop .
    I especially liked their traditional costumes !

    Sami Camp

    Sami herder, happily posing with reindeer

    About halfway between Honningsvåg and the North Cape is a VERY touristy Sami camp. Despite the numerous tourbuses, you can still get a bit of a glimpse into Sami culture. You can see Sami construction, look at reindeer, and take pictures of the Sami herders in full traditional dress mugging for the camera. It's kind of fun -- and if you're taking the Hurtigruten excursion, you'll stop here anyway, so why not make the best of it?
