Thank you that's very nice of you, loads of really knowledgeable people on here. Unlike Finland and Sweden fuel stations like here are the Town Shop. They take Visa and Petrol is not cheap, I don't think I went 100 miles without seeing one. The Arctic highway changes speed limits a lot, 70kph to 90kph. In truth you will enjoy ridding along at a gentle bimble, its the most fabulous Countryside. Tunnels and Bridges, after the first few you get board with them.

There is a Book called The Arctic Highway worth a look at.I went 2nd half of August, check but the Schools go back 20th or go earlier. The north becomes empty, wild camp or use Camping Barns, Hotels are expensive.

It really is worth 5000 plus miles getting to Nordkapp.
