Traveling Between Reindeer: Road E69 Destination Nordkapp
The E69 highway connects Olderfjord and Nordkapp (North Cape), runs parallel to Porsangerfjorden or Porsanger Fjord which is the first fjord open to the Arctic Ocean, 123 km long and fourth longest fjord in Norway. Its water is turquoise blue because sediments from melting glaciers. A completely different landscape from the rest of the country, medium to small tree forest (taiga) and tundra. Soil is frozen most of the year and is not therefore possible to grow trees. But most curious on this road are the "fellow travelers" somewhat peculiar and somewhat "dangerous": wild reindeer herds invade the road when you least expect it and cross.
