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.
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.
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.
The weather was so good, that I can’t believe we were far behind the 70 u parallel in the real Overpolarity.
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.
On the first gas station we have encountered the northern deer. Looks like he want some fuel for himself.
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.
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.
The velocity of the cutter is amazing. There are lush surf and numberless colorful hairs of the passengers.
We have reached the little town which population is only few decades of locals.
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 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.
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.
While moving we were drinking the streams water (the another one benefit of the Norway before Africa).
After three hours we have climbed on the top.
After going a little down we have found the comfortable basin, which were looking directly on the northern evening sun.
Close to midnight the sun have set pretty low above the sea, but didn’t do it completely.
At night there were vagabonding sheeps, who were unable to reach their favorite place because of our intrusion.
At morning we have proceed through the deserted island.
The entire length of our route is nearby 20 kilometers, which is covered with unbelievably scenic places.
Sometimes we were accompanied with sheeps, who helps us with especially steep going down.
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.
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
