Journey through Northern Norway
• North Norway Travel
A few months ago I was able to make a pretty big trip through Northern Norway. We started with the largest city in the north of Tromsø. Our path lay on the Lofoten Islands and vice versa, while capturing the cities of Narvik, Hinnøya.
Let's start in order, namely, the surrounding area of our first point, the city of Tromsø.
In this post are solely pictures of nature, nature in Norway is very beautiful and diverse. Here the city is another matter, after 6pm everything is dying, shops are closed, people on the streets almost there.
Everyday landscapes of Norway.
In Norway I was in the middle of July, this time is the polar day. This photograph was taken at 1:30 am.
The whole country is very mountainous; it forms a huge plateau consisting of gneiss and granite and other entities Archaean and Palaeozoic periods; in the eastern part of it is cut up by large valleys, and in the western and northern - jutting deep into the inland maritime fjords. In many places, the mountains are rounded, and the landscape is primarily the form of a large undulating plateau on which valleys and bays appear to be only a very small cracks.
Norway has a population of 5 million people, the vast majority of Norwegians live in the south, near Oslo.
The roads are very steep. For example, this road leads to the village with a population of just 20-40 people. Small pockets on the sides not to turn, as you might think, this bus stops.
Norway is one of the best countries in the world to live in, here a low unemployment rate, almost no crime and a high level of income. The minimum wage in the country is 1,500 euros, the average of about 2,500 euros. But at the same time, Norway is the most expensive country in Europe, food prices are crazy, the price for a bottle of plain water starts from $ 100, and a liter of 95 octane gasoline costs 92 rubles per liter, which is the highest in the world. Second place goes to Iceland.
Scandinavian peninsula due to the large distance from densely populated places of the continent, the county is one of the least polluted areas in Europe.
Machine - the only way to get around the northern part of the country. Due to the remoteness of villages and towns from each other, there is no public transportation here.
Norway is very fond of older tourists from the Netherlands, Denmark and Germany. 80% percent of the tourists is that they, almost everything moving on just such small houses on wheels. Very cool in my opinion, too, so I want in old age!
They are considered to be one of the most beautiful places all over Norway.
So over Norway.
