I woke up at 10 o’clock after almost 11 hours of sleep. It was very quiet in the forest. Manuel came out of his tent at about the same time. But then I realized that the ferry to Lyngen was leaving in about one hour and we had 15km to get there. So we packed up in record time and had a race down to Breivikeidet. We arrived there with burning muscles but just in time. It was kind of fun and a good wake up.
Good thing with a ferry in the morning is that you can get a fresh coffee at least.
On the other side, we could see the morning mist melting away.
Then we had a relaxed 20km ride through Lyngen. Pretty flat and almost no traffic. And the landscape was great.
There is a reason why it is also called Lyngen Alps.
I realized that I have been on that mountain in April, when we were here for the high camp. It looked pretty different when covered in snow though:
Then we took the last ferry before the North Cape and continued our tour on E6. But unfortunately, the weather turned to this:
It was getting pretty cold for the next two hours but good thing was that the traffic was much lighter than expected. Finally it cleared up again and we got a last look on Lyngen:
Our goal was to get to a camp site about 60km after the ferry. But we found a perfect wild camping spot about 5km before that. It was next to a road parking place with tables and a river nearby.
I tried a bit of trout fishing. It was fun because there were so many of them, that I got 6 within half an hour but they were too small to eat, so I released them. Then it was pasta for dinner instead.
We cycled a total of 90km today (950 hight meters) and we have about 150km left to Alta. Now the North Cape feels close.
