17-18 July. Trip to the Soroya Island

At that day we have abandoned the graceful island Majeroja. We were looking at the beautiful isles with fishing buildings. One of this island-on-island are connected to great land with the ajuric bridge.

Island on the island

The bridges and ferries are the visit card of the Scandinavia. If the bay or lake is small they put the bridge through it. If it isn’t fair, they build the ferry.

Bay Bridge

The roads were made in rock and there are also a lot of tunnels. The Majeroja connected to the mainland with the underwater channel, which is going above to the sea level on 212 miters.

Cliff over road

The weather was so good, that I can’t believe we were far behind the 70 u parallel in the real Overpolarity.

The road along the bay

Typical Norwegian road

With the perfect Norwegian road we have reached the Hammerfest – the city which is famous of its polar lights. It is also very comfy and graceful. Locals told us that at winter this city is also awesome and interesting, like at the summer. Except the musical festival the symbol of the Hammerfest is the white bear.

Polar bear – the symbol of Hammerfest

On the first gas station we have encountered the northern deer. Looks like he want some fuel for himself.

Deer and cars

From the Hammerfest our route leads to Soroja – the gigantic island, most part of which is reservation. Tourists don’t like this place, like Lofoten. The cutter is floating to Soroja – the catamaran on the underwater wings.

Water tram

The road didn’t take a more than 20 minutes. That gives islanders an opportunity. Their scholars are driving to the eldest classes from the mainland.

Full speed ahead

The velocity of the cutter is amazing. There are lush surf and numberless colorful hairs of the passengers.

This is not a torpedo attack

Another Carrier

We have reached the little town which population is only few decades of locals.

Fire crew

First, we have accommodated in the local school. It is equipped with swimming pool (!!!), not bad library and during the holidays is used as hostel.

The town is on the edge of the land

The weather comes at hand, but the locals told us that it will be the rain afternoon. Norwegians are the most competent meteorologists in the world.

Way to the northern cape

Our route were lying on the northern edge of the island to the high tower made of plate stones. It was built by locals in the 1855.

Northern cape

While moving we were drinking the streams water (the another one benefit of the Norway before Africa).

Relaxation at the stream

After three hours we have climbed on the top.

Tower – Landmark

After going a little down we have found the comfortable basin, which were looking directly on the northern evening sun.

Tent on a cliff

Close to midnight the sun have set pretty low above the sea, but didn’t do it completely.

Midnight Sun

At night there were vagabonding sheeps, who were unable to reach their favorite place because of our intrusion.

The hill and the tower

At morning we have proceed through the deserted island.

Next on the route

The entire length of our route is nearby 20 kilometers, which is covered with unbelievably scenic places.

The bay and sandy beach with streams

Bay and views of the islands

Sometimes we were accompanied with sheeps, who helps us with especially steep going down.

Sheep Squad conductors

We have moved along the long tight sandy bay with the big amount of seagulls. They were not too glad to see us. You should move through the sand without stops, because it is wet with water and continuously going down.

Sandy Bay and the dune

On the left side of the bay was the high mountain, which I would like to call the dune. Because it is have the sandy slope. The wild deers are moving along the steep slope, lay down the chain footprints on the ground.

To be continued…

P.S. The rain have started at 12:00
