Discover The North Norway

The northern region begins beyond Trondheim, beyond it 1,000 miles of desolate land stretch away. Nord-Trondelag displays vast conifer forests which are the habitat of elks, reindeers and minks. A multitude of lakes lie between Grong and Mosjoen. The northernmost part of the country consists mostly of the red mountains and snow-capped summits of the Finnmark. The vegetation consisting of fir and birch trees is fairly dense, with some flowers in the summer. Nordkapp, the northernmost point of the country is a dark platform overlooking the Arctic polar sea, over 984 ft high. The view is magnificent especially around the time of the midnight sun. From Moesjen, as you head north, Nordland stretches over vast open spaces, where the vegetation is sparser than in the south. You are entering the polar circle. Beyond this invisible border, in the middle of immense untamed land covered with tundra, a few towns appear such as Fauske or Bodo, but the vastness of the open spaces and the wild vegetation show that nature is the dominant force here. Between Bodo and Narvik, the snowy mountains begin to appear as you get closer to Nordkapp.
