From Narvik we went along the E6 to Lofoten. Immediately behind Narvik you drive an imposing bridge. Norway and bridge construction, yes, that suits. Of course you always pay well for the buildings. Most of them are subject to a toll, until they are paid.
Actually a very good approach. (Hello Mr. Scheuer, that would be something for you?). The EasyGo Bizz I had gained, has proven itself. The Bizz is programmed on the registration plate and thus registers all routes that cost just toll. When I arrived home, the billing was already there!
But now, the first foothills of the Lofoten. Just heavenly and luck, it was gorgeous weather. Sun, open convertible, soft music, beautiful landscapes and almost no traffic ... .. no more to say!
But of course there is much to say about Lofoten. But there are countless guides and reports in travel magazines, because I can not keep up with my narrative art.
I then spent three days in Henningsvär. Henningsvär is a fishing village in the Norwegian municipality Vågan, which is located on two small, offshore islands off Lofoten Island Austvågøya. Henningsvär is located at the southern tip of the island, 24 km from Svolvär and has 510 inhabitants. Today, it is above all a tourist attraction, with its typical port buildings, many good restaurants and shops. For years, a German lives here and is dedicated to whale research.
The northernmost surf school
I drove around the island a bit randomly on two days, so came to the Viking Museum and Unstad. There is the northernmost Surf School settled. How they want to surf there, but escapes my knowledge. Also, I passed a place called Hovsund, dream location with a small, fine sandy beach. Who is traveling with a camper on the Lofoten, I can recommend Hovsund. Oh yes, campers. Does anyone still believe in the Mähr alone with a camper on the way and where it is just nice to put down. Not me. Even in Lofoten, these campers can be found in a hundred.
I somehow missed the cheese dairy I was aiming for as a fixed point, I simply did not find it. Swam over it. The nights at the hotel Finnholmen Brygge I can highly recommend. Is housed in an old fishing shed. Simple and functional, you do not need more.
Next stop: Finally at the Cape.
