Re: SARN HELEN again

The seasonal TRO runs until June ( from June 6th from memory but I'm not certain- when I'm passing next I will confirm) and begins again in September (ish). As Richard says, avoid going off-piste within Walter's Arena to avoid unwanted hassle. At the northern end of Lower Sarn is a community-run caf...

Re: 520 exc or GP450

Re: Norway & Nordcap

Russia isn't problematic at all; I've crossed from Estonia into Russia, as long as your paperwork is in order it is easy. Seeing as you'll be up North, I'd consider going into Russia from Finland and maybe back into the EU via one of the Baltic States.
