Lapland and Norway

April 2000 - A spring trip to Finnish Lapland and to the northern parts of Norway.


Finnish Lapland | Norway | Back in Finland

Christiane (a friend from Guadeloupe) stayed spring 2000 as an exchange student in Turku, Finland. During her stay we visited some places in different parts of Finland. For Easter, we left for Lapland with her daughter Eden and with our friend Solenn.

We travelled by car to Enonteki÷ where my parents' cottage is located. It's not far from Norway, so it was easy to visit there too.

On April 21st - the Good Friday - we paid a visit to Norway. Solenn wanted to see the sea and the horizon. According to the map, the closest place to see some open sea was at Tromvik fjord near the city of Troms°. That was where we hence headed.

Back in Finland

On Saturday morning when others where still sleeping I went to take few photos of the cottage. Stairs to the sauna were covered by snow and I wanted to get a photo of that. Later on that day Hannu and Santtu (neighbours) accompanied us to a trip to the mountain fells.
