      Honningsvag question, any photo ops noting this very northern point? And.

      Norway Yesterday

      In Honningsvag are there any photo ops noting this very northern point? Or something like in Key West for the most southern point in the US. We will be there mid June on a cruise and, any suggested things to see too, all suggestions are appreciated. Where is the Ice Bar and it worth it?

    • Vuorji mountain and Lievnasjaure lake

      Finnmark May 10, 2015 at 3:08 AM

      My name is Nikki and I live in Amsterdam. I am planning a hiking trip this summer to northern Finnmark in Norway.

      I read this book that really inspired me to go over there. I don't know if you have heard about it before, it is really popular in Holland. I believe in English it is called Beyond Sleep, by W.F. Hermans. It is about a scholar going on a fieldtrip in that area.

      He starts in Skoganvarre, then heads West towards the Vuorji mountain and the Lievnasjaure lake. Then he goes south to Karasjok and I believe he follows a famous marked trail with small stones too.

      I am looking for people with some experience in this area who might have information about these places, the hiking and camping itself and maybe if you know some local guides that can help me.

    • GPS Navigation / POI warning legal ?

      Norway May 30, 2015 at 11:26 PM

      Dear Forum members from Norway,
      I hope somebody from Norway can give me an answer to below question.

      Actual Navigation System have ( for example Garmin / TOMTOM ) a build in POI warning wich include warnings for speed cameras as well.

      I tryed several sources to find a proved answer if the use of these poi-warnings are legal with norway law, or not.

      For example the German ADAC says "no is not" the Austriam ÖAMC says "yes - you can" and the manufacurers of the navigation systems have only "maybe, and maybe not" as an answer.

      Hopefully there is somebody from Norway who can give me an actual valid answer based on actual norwegian law on this question:

      Is it legal to use navigation systems with buildt in POI warnings for speed cameras in Norway ????

      Where are these craters?

      Norway May 24, 2015 at 2:17 AM

      On holiday in Norway, many years ago, we came across a rocky area of deep craters, that we had to be very careful walking around! I have forgotten where they were. Does anyone know of them? Could have been on the island of Hvaler, or near Oppdahl? We also spent time near Lillehammer, but I doubt they were there.

      neighborhoods/schools in Kristiansand

      by geigen Online Now Apr 22, 2005 at 8:54 AM

      Hello,

      We are moving to Kristiansand for ten months and my 8 year old son will attend school. I have read that there have been tensions between immigrants and Norwegians in Kristiansand. My husbands employer has suggested that my son attend a Mottakskolen for immigrant children in Kristiansand. The kid is a blond American. Would he be accepted at such a school? Would he not be accepted at an ordinary Norwegians school (he does not speak Norwegian)? Are there any neighborhood or schools we should avoid?

      Any help would be appreciated!

      Thank you,
