Crossing the Arctic Circle

Norway is really a huge country. If you only see the map, you mean not that it's so big. So, on the way north, you go miles and miles, initially passing slightly denser populated areas with many meadows and fields alternating with forests. The more you get north the less fields and meadows you find, and also the forest changes. You ride through coniferous forest, and then more and more birches, the trees become smaller, and eventually there are only small plants along your way... The Arctic Circle is near.

I enjoyed to travel with so little traffic on these endless roads, that yet, will never get boring. The many shades of green, creeks and brooks, the smells of nature... true caresses for all senses. What more can you ask for?

At 66 degrees 33 north latitude I reached the Arctic Circle. From now on, I'll be in arctic climes...
