Day 484: South to Vega ArchipelagoJune 13 in Norway
Long drive south today, about six hours worth. Sadly nothing too exciting, though the scenery is always nice. Even today when it's "less" interesting, it's generally more inspiring than Sweden which was mostly flat pine forests.
Most exciting stop was about an hour south of Bodo, where we crossed back over the arctic circle. There was a building here this time, the POLAR CENTRE where you could be cheap souvenirs and the like, and of course take photos with the signs.
Otherwise it was a fairly uneventful drive. Arrived late afternoon in the little town of Bronnoysund, just across a sound from tomorrow's world heritage site. Late in the afternoon we drove to a famous mountain whose name I've forgotten, but it has a hole in it. About 300m off the ground, there's literally just a hole in the mountain! It's actually two sea caves, from when the area was at sea level - more isostatic land uplift!
We took a few photos and headed back to our campground, another two nights in a cabin here since it was again supposed to be cold and wet!Read more
