Lost in the Artic – Finnmark Adventure
Hi everyone! We have some news to tell you about, Sara has moved to… Guess where!
Last week I moved to Finnmark, the northern region of Norway above the Artic Circle.
The first experience was quite eventful! I left last week from Milan. With “only” four flights, the last one with a small propeller plane, I had to be able to reach Hammerfest, the northernmost city in the world.
However, there was a snow storm in Hammerfest! When we were approaching the landing strip, the plane was shaked from one side to the other by the strong winds. The pilot tried to land but it was just impossible! He decided to gain altitude again, I was just hoping that we had enough fuel in the plane tank!
He explained us, in Norwegian, which was the plan. I couldn’t understand nothing at all, of course. Then the hostess explained to me that we were going to land in Honningsvåg. The lady sitted next to me showed me in the map where Honninsvag was located… well, I was directed further north, in North Cape municipality!!
At least we were able to land and stay there overnight.
The next morning we took a bus to go back to our original destination… but this is another adventure.
Have a look at the gallery to see some pictures I took during my Finnmark adventure!
