In these two days we will focus more on photographing and visiting the villages of fishermen, we will visit Reine, Hamnoy, Sacrisoya and also A, the city with the shortest name in the world!

Overnight near Reine.
DAY 7 - 11 feb. 2019
Breakfast, sunrise in Reine area and departure to the north.
During this day we will redo the road to the north, we will have a chance to review some of the places already seen during the trip and why not, stop again.
As you can imagine the weather in Norway varies very quickly, so this will be the day that will allow us to review and recover locations that we may have seen previously, but with adverse weather.
