  • Driving through Norway in a car

    I had the idea to drive all the way from Vienna to Nordkapp and even to Kirkenes in my motorhome in August 2009 but then I unfortunately had a problem with the engine in Trondheim, so I had to give these travel-plans up.This is my conclusion after driving a motorhome ca. 6.000km through Norway:You need a lot of time and patience in order to really...

  • Cruising by Hurtigruten to Vadsoe /...

    All of the Hurtigruten-ships will make a short stop in Vadsø on their NORTHBOUND cruise from Bergen to Kirkenes. They will stop there for just 30 minutes in order to load and unload their goods and passangers and you as a passanger will have enough time to walk over to the other shed with that small exhibition about the airships "Norge" and...

  • Cruising with Hurtigruten

    Well, maybe the expression "cruising" might be a bit misleading, especially for people who have made a lot of cruises already, but Hurtigruten is certainly the best way to see all of the coast of Norway. Hurtigruten is the name of the well-known post-ships cruising every day of the year along the norwegian coast on a fixed schedule between Bergen...

  • By local boat or bus

    Many villages and inhabited islands can only be reached by boat. Connex has now taken over much of the traffic in Finnmark, both by boat and bus.The picture shows one of the coastal express boats after having had some rough weather. The coastal express is still used by locals to travel within Finnmark, and for shipping goods.

  • By boat

    We got all the way up north from Helsinki in a few days by driving, it is a long ride, but in the end, when you arrive and see such view, you know it was all worth it

  • Gas station

    If you drive from the Finnish Lapland, you better fill your tank before crossing the border to the Norwegian side and gas is cheaper in Finland.This is the gas station in Norway in between the mountains on the way to Hammerfest.

  • Tunnel

    ... and the same here, because of the mountains and the fjords in some places you need to drive thorough the tunnel to avoid mountain climbing.

  • The bridges over the roads

    Because of the mountains and the fjords in some places you need to drive around the fjords even hundred kilometres just to the city you can see it already across the sea few kilometres away. In some places there are ferries across, but in modern times there are few beautiful bridges as this one on the way to Hammerfest.

  • Just drive

    The best way to hang around here is to drive your own car, then you can just stop where ever you want. Just be prepared for any kind of weather, even on July as in the photo here.

  • Ferry

    If you want to see the Lyngen Alps you must take two ferries: the one from Breivikeidet to Svensby, the other one from Lyngseidet-Olderdalen.

  • A spectacular flight

    On my third trip to Finnmark I travelled by air from Trondheim to Honningsvåg. The last part of the trip was spectacular! The airplane was a Widerøe Twin Otter, with as far as I can remember, 16 passanger seats. Since there was no pressure cabin we had to fly low, and followed roads and fjords left and right, and hills up and down. The only flight...

  • The Coastal Express

    The Coastal express is a great way of travelling both to and around Finnmark! I have made a travelogue about my second trip to Finnmark by Hurtigruten in 1970The new ships are modern and comfortable, many tourists do the whole trip Bergen - Kirkenes - Bergen as a cruise, or they go by boat one way and fly the other. But the ships are still used for...
