Just a few reasons….

The Arctic Race of Norway will be coming to the North Cape on August 14, 2014.  If you are considering being a spectator and cheering on the cyclists as they race towards the North Cape Globe, then here are a few good reasons to travel to 71˚N, join in the festivities and explore the area.

      Thanks Scott. I’m actually working on a collage inspired by that photo. Looking forward to the reindeer returning to our island in a little over a month 🙂 Hope you are doing well way over there.

    Wow, look at the size of that crab! I think reindeer hanging out in your backyard sounds wonderful.
    Beautiful images, Erica.

      After moving here, I know why they’re called KING crab 🙂 As for reindeer in the backyard, I’m one of the few who like having them in the yard. Most people don’t enjoy having their flowers munched on 🙂
