At the border between Norway and Russia is a hamlet called Grense Jakobselv. In the late summer and early autumn of 2010 I rode to this place, and back again. All around the Scandinavian Peninsula, in some 6 1/2 weeks.

Along the coast of the Finnmark.
To the North Cape
by Walter Hoogerbeets, tour started May 2009, submitted 2 December 2009
language: en, nl

There was a moment when an idea popped up in my head: I should go to the North Cape. Or actually, I acquired the strong inner conviction that I had to go to the North Cape. I could hardly think of something else.

So in spring of 2009 I left my house in Holland, followed the coasts of North sea, Wadden sea and Norwegian sea until that magical northernmost point.

4625 km through amazing landscapes with extreme variation: from the flat countries where it is sometimes hard to tell where land ends and sea begins, to the fjords where granite rises vertically out of the water.
