To the Northern Lands We Go...


"Kirkenes, the capital of Sør-Varanger municipality in the northernmost country; Finnmark, is located as far north-east as possible in Norway (70º north - 30 º east). The municipality has about 10 000 inhabitants spread over a territory of 3.670 km2 and borders both to Russia and Finland. The nature is different from the rest of Norway. There are many eastern plant-species growing in the municipality that are rare or non existent in other parts of Norway.

They have a Reindeer Park with a Lavvu or Sami tent: Of course walking around these tamed reindeer and feeding them (they eat reindeer moss) is exotic, even for a Norwegian". Taken by RennyBA
