A drive through no-man's-land

On our way to Kirkenes we drove up to Honningsvåg and to Norkap. As we drove on the tundra the cars begun to decrease by numbers. It was rain and 6 celcius, foggy and storm. In the middle of august!

The only living thing on this landscapes was raindeers, they were all over!

We arrived in Honningsvåg after a drive through a tunnel 200 meters under the sea, it was the most scary thing last summer. First down to 200 meter, and it was dead steep! Then up exactly the same way! The tunnel was foggy and you couldn't see a thing! So drive carefully if your going through that tunnel!

    It would be quite easy to become absorbed by these beautiful statues and forget how close one is to the cliff edge!

    I guess even just for that awesome photo of the midnight sun one wouldn't mind paying the fees. Spectacular to see that for real, I'm sure. :-)
