Norway 2014 – 03 Andoya&Langoya
Satisfied, in the morning we head to the mountains to Gryllefjord.
Right now we pass through gorgeous steep roads descending on both sides of the fjord. It wouldn't be long - the tunnel and the bridge were almost ready.
Aboard the ferry, we take one last look at the beautiful Senja.
The city is located in the northernmost part of the island of Andøya. A strange place known for its peat fields and cloudberry production. We will see enough peat, but we never saw cloudberry…
In front of us is the bridge that connects Andøya with Langøya.
And like any Norwegian road construction effort, the bridge looks amazing. It is almost the same feeling when one climbs and descends on it.
Langøya turns out to be low and rounded land, all in scattered here and there cottages, farms and arable land. Under arable land do not imagine that someone is planting something, but just a meadow that is mowed and the grass is harvested regularly. and peat bogs, many peat bogs. resembles more the lands of Iceland than Norway - peat, wind and rare low crooked trees.
In the evening we reach the end of the island and after a fast ferry we transfer to the Lofoten archipelago, the official destination of our current trip.
The sun has set somewhere behind the clouds and we will soon find the place to spend the night. It's almost midnight, so the photos of the view around us were taken at 10 sec. exposition.
Our slightly gloomy day ends with fresh shrimp, cooked quickly in the kitchen of the "bungalow"; nice, huh ?!
