    The Guide brough me from Honningsvag to Skarsvag 18 kms north of Honningsvag. Before I departed from Japan, the only thing to contact each other was via E-mail. Here, the real meeting with guide made me exciting.

  • Most of the time..

    To be honest with you, most of the time in December are dark. The sky turns bright in a while then become darks again. You would see the night takes place almost 23 hours a day in December.

  • Dark in December

    There was no risk at all to visit such north-end place in winter. You will think that I am right to say that when the sky turns dark.
