This tiny church is near Kirkenes. It is made of wood painted red and has downspouts that look like serpents! Heaters line the rows of seats.

What's for dinner?

Join us for a typical Sami meal, with entertainment.

The North Cape

This monument marks the North Cape, the very top of Europe!

    Very interesting for me page, Susan! My father was among those Russians who fought their way forward to liberate Kirkenes and Norway in 1944. Then he served as an officer in Severomorsk (near Norway's border). I spent my childhood there...

    Looks like you had a great time. I am quite adventurous with food, so would prob have tried the reindeer. ;-)

    What a unique experience, Sue! I agree with you, though, I couldn't eat anything I had just been introduced to...

    I had to read your tip twice and then think about my geography, but yes I guess Norway does border on Russia. I just didn’t think anyone lived that far north. I should know better. Of course they do in Canada as well.

    It looks like you had some very interesting experiences in the far north of Norway!

    So you didn't want to eat reindeer after meeting one, but did you? :-)

    A trip on the Hurtigruten is one of my dreams. No driving along the steep winding roads but the wonderful scenery would still be there.

    We'll be taking the Hurtigruten ourselves in just a few weeks! Cheers, Mark
