Visiting Øksfjord

The weekend of 18 – 20 November 2011, I visitedØksfjord. Øksfjord centre of Loppa municipality, and according to Statistics Norway thay had a population of 1 087 as of 1 October 2011. Øksfjord is an island in the south of Finnmark, and is now connected to the mainland with a tunnell, towards Alta. If you want to go to Hammerfest, where I currently live, there is a regular ferry connection that takes about two hours.

I had a lovely weekend, and among other things I went to the Christmas market, where I bought a couple of mittens.

Here are some photos from the trip:
