As a fan of the Nordics one territory was missing on my bucket list so I decided in 2019 to change this. Within 12 days I drove from Tromsø via Reisafjord, Alta, Honningsvåg to the North Cape and spend some relaxing days at the end of the trip at Årøybuktneset, Lyngseidet. It was a wonderful trip with a lot of great nature and the most spectacular northern lights I have seen so far.
In addition, we had a great time at the northernmost distillery in the world. If you will ever be in this region, I highly recommend having a stop at the Aurora Spirit Distillery and book a Whisky tasting and/or a Distillery Tour. Besides a beautiful landscape scenery, it is also impressive to taste the great spirits which are produced from local herbs, berries and glacier water. As we were staying in this region out of season, we were very honoured to have the Whiskey Tasting with the CEO himself and the day after the Head Distiller showed us around in his holy halls.
