From North Cape to Alta

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Fri, 07/22/2022 - 14:38

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.
