10. Santa Claus Office, Arctic Circle, Norway. It was only September but the Santa's Office was busy dealing with the small groups of tourists. The imposing bearded man himself was in residence. He wore his red suit, talked to the children and adults, and smiled when they wished to have their photographs taken with him.

11. Fjord in Alta, Norway. A view of the fjord from the site of the Rock Carvings Museum in the small Norwegian town of Alta.

12. Honningsvag, Norway. This small northern town is pretty with its fishing boats in the harbour and colourful houses nestling at the foot of the barren hills. From there a road leads through a bleak countryside to the North Cape. On the slopes reindeers graze undisturbed.

13. The North Cape, Norway. The Cape is the northern tip of European mainland only about two thousand kilometres from the North Pole. Even on the wintry cloudy afternoon the view from its rocky cliffs have spiritual qualities and are a great tourist attraction.

14. Honningsvag port, Norway. There are boats of all sizes in the harbour. These days more often the luxury ships arrive, bringing tourists to that remote area.
