    That is so true, some times we just feel attracted to places we visit: beyond what would be normal. I have felt it many times as well, without having any prior connection to that place.

    Skjervøy is one of the places, I have also only visited by Hurtigruten.

      Don't know the name of this place (think it's the coast of Senja though) Between Finnsness and Tromso.

          A place called Stor-Elvdal is in a serious "fight" about a moose (elg) with the equally obscure place in Canada named Moose Jaw:

            I'm no expert in those waters, but isn't these images taken in RYUMSTRAUMEN south of Tromsø?

            The structure on top of the mountain in the first image would be a serious clue.

              It has already been approved a fee of NOK 100 for access to the roof terras at Fjellstua. Now a tourist tax has been proposed at Trollstigen:
              https://www.nrk.no/mr/snart-kan-du-m...gen-1.14451584
              It doesn't say anything about how this tax is going to be collected, or if locals will be exempt etc. (Watch this space)

                NOK 100 for the access! Why do Norwegians always take such huge amounts! Wouldn't it be better to take just 20? I won't pay the 100 and look for another viewpoint nearby (and there are some!!). Why not restrict the area for café vistors during the opening hours (and leave it open, if the café is closed)?
                My experience at Trollstigen is, that very much people make also a stop here, consuming somthing or buy souvenirs. Isn't that enough? And a more friendly way to get money?
                Why just hold out one's hand for nothing but allow him to be there? Very welcoming!

                You are not alone, Ralf. I will NEVER pay NOK 100,- to get access to the Fjellstua view point. Are they crazy???

                Impressive images of this world famous mountain peak with a sprinkle of snow.
                Oh man, trollveggen is steep.
                I do not quite understand that people will jump voluntarily out of the mountain top here, but of course that is a completely different matter.

                  Picture # 302 shows Kistefjell station is a combined transmitter that communicates both radio, TV, mobile signals and internet traffic and is located 1003 meters above sea level on the mainland not too far north from Finnsnes.

                  Image # 302/2 shows Leiknesodden where the ship, after passing the green light flash, takes a starboard turn to round the headland.

                  Picture # 302/5 shows the old quay at Gibostad on the island of Senja.

                  Picture # 303 shows Vardneset red flash just north of Gibostad

                  Picture # 303/3 shows Slettneset lighthouse which is located on the mainland, starboard side on the voyage to Tromsø.

                    All from memory, or did you have to look it up in your old "Kursbok"??

                    Fortunately, memory is still intact
                    But I have my course books for sailing between Bergen-Kirkenes-Bergen available if the memory does not work properly.

                  Awesome..... Trollveggen is just so very spectacular, especially as you have captured it with a little snow.

                  On behalf of yvenac, thank you for identifying those areas, DS Lyngen.

                    Utsire, an island so far out in the ocean that they should be able to buy duty free goods:

                    The only way to get there is by this ferry:
