Norway and the Northern Lights

Honningsvag

sunny 6 °F

Today we stopped at our northern most point on the Northward voyage, the small town of Honningsvag at a latitude 70 degrees 58 minutes north. Today was exciting because it was the first day of the year when they could see the sun for a few minutes ending the long winter's night. We walked around while there was some light and then went to the small but interesting North Cape Museum. It was dark again around 2:00pm and we started our trek east and then south. This afternoon we passed the famous rock formation the Finnchurch which was lighted up in different colors.
