Properties

Remarks

Short stage in the two-day-stretch from Inari to Nuorgam. I made just 38 km of the 171 km of this stretch. First I stocked up my supplies in a supermarket in Inari. Now I am again on the main road No 4 up north, so I meet several bikers on long trips, also those to or from the North Cape. I spent a lot of time in the exciting Sami museum of Siida outside Inari. Afterwards i went straight ahead at the road junction to the North Cape and went on towards Utsjoki. But not far, as I chose to 'get stuck' in The Four Winds Cabin, Neljän Tuulen Tupa after having had dinner at their restaurant. It's simply too beautiful! And now the football World Cup in South Africa is on. I watch the second half of the match Uruguay vs. France (0-0) in the room of an Estonian restaurant worker. Afterwards I pitch my tent on the lakeside. Try in vain to fire the sauna, but it will not burn. The most beautiful sunshine through the night. But at last I have to give up and slide into my sleeping bag.
