We stay in a cabin at a small camp site just north of Honningsvåg. Like so many other campsite around Norway it has a prime location – generally camp sites seems to have better locations than hotels in this part of the country.
Right across the road from the camp there is a small Sami settlement – so we can go over and have a little look at the place. There is nobody home for the moment so we can walk around a bit and see what it is like. I am not sure if people actually still live here from time to time – or if it has just been left behind as an outdoor museum.
We go around and see the small settlement which consists of a turf building and a couple of wooden houses. One thing we hadn’t seen before was a little house on the top of a long pole. This type of construction is actually used as storage of food for the Sami. The little building on the top of the pole was built in a way to make it difficult for animals to get inside the little construction.
It was a nice little walk around the place and after we had a look we took a walk down to the edge of our camp site from where there is a great view of the bay below.
