Of the many options with the expensive prices of gas in Europe, we opted for the route towards North Cape starting on a ferry from Germany to Denmark, followed by a series of bridges to get to Sweden. The dash up to the Ice Hotel led us across the Arctic Circle and introduced all of us to the eerie feeling of Polar Night, the time of year when the sun never makes it above the horizon when you are so far North. The light and the feeling you get up here is nothing like I have ever experienced before. The twilight and color of the sky give you energy and make you depressed at the same time.
It seems like a dark and lonely trip, but even up until now, it is one of my favorite points on the whole expedition, this trip North. So enjoy the photos.
