Arctic Overland Series Part 3

Back in part 2 we had hit the tree line and crossed over and into the Arctic Circle.

Every time we find a new epic camp spot we think that things can’t get any better but we are proved to be wrong time and time again. In part 3 we head into Finland and then into Norway and onto the island of Senja. The Mosquitos are still chomping on us right up until we leave Finland and although we missed the dense forest and lake areas, it was nice to experience the landscape and free camp spots Norway had to offer.

As promised we have added the actual GPS locations of the free camp spots we found in part 3 as a thank you for your ongoing support. We will continue to do this through the following five or more following episodes. If you are interested in any of the equipment you see us using in this series please feel free to check out the Cooking & Camping Equipment section on the web shop. As most of you will all ready know the only things that ever end up on there is the equipment we actually use ourselves, that’s how CVC became the trusted brand we are today.

It’s that time of the week again to grab yourself a cold one, sit back and come and join us for the ride with us in part 3 of the CVC Arctic Circle Overland Film Series..

    Translation from the cave:
    The Russian Cave

    There is a legend about this cave dating back to the 12 century.

    At this time , with the current welfare given in the northern fishing villages, a russian fishing vessel arrived. The weather was terrible and the vessel fell off the course and was wrecked . The few survivors arrived at Mefjorvær, and was nurtured to recovery by the habitants. After some time they was freighted from fishing village to fishing village, until they arrived at home.

    They told about the great riches found in Mefjordvær and otherwise in the fishing villages of the North of Norway.

    The next spring, the Russians left the coast of Murmansk, to visit the rich norwegians. One evening they anchored outside Mefjordvær. When a rowboat from shore arrived, it is told that the russians assaulted the crew in plain sight, and murdered them.

    The people onshore ran away, and some to the mountains.

    A family ran to the Knutavika, and hid in the cave here. The wife had brought a dog, that started to bark. The Russians heard the barking and shortly found the hiding place. They killed the family, and burned the entire village to the ground.

    This is a legend, and not confirmed. But maybe some archeology research will find a ash layer from the 12th century in the «Gardshaugen» area ( Farm Hill ) .
