NORWAY

It was quite a drive to get to the Lofoten Islands, Norway, from Tampere, Finland.
The sights to see in Lofoten are just awesome. In the sense that you stand there in complete awe of the surroundings.
The main road that runs through the Lofoten Islands is E10 a very windy and very narrow and in this case icey road. With every
winding turn a new gem revealed itself. A beautiful valley, a moon that was so large it seemed it would only
make sense if you could reach up and touch it, racks of drying cod and old crickety houses backlit with twilight skies.
We visited also Senja island, which is truly a hidden gem - less known than Lofoten, but definitely worth to visit.
Dramatic peaks dropping into the sea, white sand beaches surrounded by the mountains, the abundance of wildlife and untouched nature.
Add to this opportunity to see the natural phenomenon of Midnight sun and Northern Lights and you will get the recipe for the perfect outdoor travel destination in Norway.
After Senja we droved all the way up to Tromso and Alta, and from there to the Northern Lapland where we had rented a cottage.
When got back home we had been driven almost 5000 kilometers (3100 miles).
