in small print was an alternative excursion i asked the chap in charge of the excursions from the hurtigruten front desk and they told me about meeting heidi and a fishing village.
everyone else in fact 3 busloads were going to the north cape.. which everyone was doing
... i thought to myself have an alternative.. there are so many photos on the internet
and so many people there.. give myself a break
let us see skarsvag.. and meet heidi.. and her christmas house but
visit this last remaining village .. so far north and see what it was like
to live there.. am so glad i did.

As it was snowing when we visited from a cruise ship .As a key stage One teacher I recognised it from the Geography programme Barney Bear goes to Norway from many years ago !!!Our tour guide lived in the village and was very informative and helpful .I like the idea of lighting the windows .
Also went to see the Christmas house but didn't like it as it was far too busy and the owner not very friendly she was rude to some fellow passengers so I didn't have the waffles !!

It was the only place, which was open in September. It was also the only place to have food that day we where there at the area.

This is a remote and peaceful place. Wandering round the small bay and watching the local fishermen mending their nets takes you back to a different age. The folk are friendly but many of the older folk don't speak English but hey I don't speak Norwegian! You get a feeling of how hard life is. Our guide gave us a tour, explaining about the houses and history, and then left us to wander. It is such a beautiful place - not touristy at all. We also went to Heidi's Christmas House. It is a small place jam packed full of local crafts, and all things Christmassy. The folk serving were wonderful. They couldn't do too much for you as they packed gifts up and explained who had made them. The cafe, although small, served fantastic waffles and coffee and everyone was very friendly.
