No. 11 – Lofoten, Moskenes – Norway

No. 11 Lofoten, Moskenes – Road trip with my daughter on the way to Nordkapp

11 of 14 – “Norge på langs”

The summer of 2015 I and my daughter decided to drive from Stavanger in Norway, and all the way up to Nordkapp.

To make the trip “complete”, after visiting Nordkapp we also drove all the way down to Lindesnes in the south.

The trip was done with our family car, the Volvo V40 R-Design 1,6 diesel.


 

 


KM in total was 6080, the road trip took 12 days.

From “Visit Norway”

Lofoten:

Lofoten is known for excellent fishing, spectacular nature attractions such as the northern lights and the midnight sun, and small villages off the beaten track. Kayak between the islands, go fishing for the catch of your life or look for sea eagles soaring in the sky.

No. 9 Arctic Circle, from the road trip with my daughter – “On the way to Nordkapp”

Arctic Circle latitude depends on the Earth’s axial tilt, which fluctuates within a margin of 2° over a 40,000-year period, due to tidal forces resulting from the orbit of the Moon.

Arctic Circle crossed by E6 on Saltfjellet. The circle is not where Polarsirkelsenteret is located. The centre is firm, but the circle moves according to how the Earth’s angle to the sun is changing.


Fact; Arctic Circle location is, in reality, not fixed.  

As of 8 June 2017, it runs 66°33′46.7″ north of the Equator.


 

From Wikipedia about the “Arctic Circle”:

The Arctic Circle is the most northerly of the abstract five major circles of latitude as shown on maps of the Earth. It marks the northernmost point at which the noon sun is just visible on the northern winter solstice and the southernmost point at which the midnight sun is just visible on the northern summer solstice. The region north of this circle is known as the Arctic, and the zone just to the south is called the Northern Temperate Zone. North of the Arctic Circle, the sun is above the horizon for twenty-four continuous hours at least once per year (and therefore visible at midnight) and below the horizon for twenty-four continuous hours at least once per year (and therefore not visible at noon); this is also true within the equivalent polar circle in the Southern Hemisphere, the Antarctic Circle.

The position of the Arctic Circle is not fixed; as of 8 June 2017, it runs 66°33′46.7″ north of the Equator. Its latitude depends on the Earth’s axial tilt, which fluctuates within a margin of 2° over a 40,000-year period, due to tidal forces resulting from the orbit of the Moon. Consequently, the Arctic Circle is currently drifting northwards at a speed of about 15 metres (49 feet) per year.
