"Arctic towns" Arctic Favorite Tip by Manara
Arctic General: 37 reviews and 41 photos
Favorite thing: I have created separate pages for the towns I have visited in the arctic region: Kiruna (Sweden) and Narvik (Norway), the respective latitudes are 67° 51? N and 68° 25? N. Both have about 20,000 inhabitants and can be reached by train, so this cannot be considered the ?Wild North?.
I have been more to the north than that, in Honningsvåg (70° 59?N), but it has 3200 inhabitants, so by the Norwegian law it is considered a village, since 5000 people are considered the minimum for a town.
The most northern place I have visited is Nordkapp, as I mentioned in the intro.
