Today we've arrived to Hammerfest - world's northernmost town. Even
tough it is quite small there are lots of people and cars, there are
even traffic jams, but mostly because of reindeers that are walking in
We went up to Varden lookout tower, enjoyed traditional waffles with sour cream and strawberry jam and the beautiful view on Hammerfest.
We also went to see fountain in the town square that was presented to Hammerfest by an American ambassador whose mother was from this town, but the fountain was not working.
From Hammerfest we continued to Alta where we were staying overnight.
Alta is quite small but cosy place. All services are concentrated on the main square. We had a good supper in a local place "Omega" with northernmost beer Mock from Tromsø. Then we played chess on the town square under midnight sun and enjoyed the view of the sun over the ocean.
A long drive to Tromsø awaited us next day.
