... and getting a photo of these islands with the mighty white peaks in the background just makes for great pictures.As this road heads through the mountains they have constructed a number of long tunnels rather than go over the passes. Again some of these tunnels are extremely long and riding through them one soon becomes rather chilled. You could enter the tunnel at 18 Celsius but by the end of it the temp has fallen to a freezing 7 Celsius.The other thing with these great tunnels ...
... although now only about 10% of Samis are involved in this traditional livelihood. There were exhibits of a traditional wooden house, a Lavvu and Sami handicrafts. The museum is the oldest scientific institution in North Norway.
We walked back to the main road behind the museum through a small wood and had great views of the lake. We picked up the bus and made our way to the Polar museum. Here we saw exhibits of seal hunting and polar expeditions of famous Norwegian ...

A nice DIY place. If you should arrive outside of business hours, you'll get the door code by mail and find your key in a safe box. Shared bathrooms were okay. Hotel-offered breakfast is meager but it's possible to eat your own food there. Internet is free.
Lovely quiet surroundings. Close to bus stop and harbor.
