The Camino de Santiago leads to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, where the bones of Saint James, one of the 12 apostles, are kept under the cathedral. If the long hike used to be a journey into the "I", today it is more and more like an ongoing sporting event.

From North Cape to Alta

The E69, which joins the E6 to Alta, is a dream road with spectacular views. At the end of May the roads are clear but the snow-capped hills and mountains give a wintry impression.

Occasionally reindeer appear who have already scraped small patches of grass under the snow to graze. It goes a long way along the Porsangerfjord. Small islands with few houses suddenly appear behind the curves and tunnels of the country road.

You can often go 80 km/h here and we make good progress until the road gets busier when we arrive in Alta and we are happy about the many cyclists.
