Breivikeidet

Breivikeidet and surroundings

We stopped in Breivikeidet on our way to the island of Senja. It was actually a detour. The road follows a valley towards the east. We could see with the thermometer in the van temperature dropping very fast as we were progressing towards Breivikeidet, reaching -25°C. We stopped in the village first to take a few shots of the colorful houses and frosted trees. Then we drove all the way to the ferry terminal from where you can board for Svenby across the fjord.

Fog colored by the sun was floating on the freezing water, making the view very appealing with high mountains in the background. After an hour or so, the ferry emerged from the fog like a ghost vessel, quite impressive!
