During fieldwork in Kilpisjärvi last summer, we took a day off to visit Skibotn, a little village in northern Norway. As Kilpisjärvi is only 3 km from the Norwegian border it is a fairly short trip to reach this coastal village on the Lyngen fjord of the Arctic sea. We had traveled this route a week earlier – but it had been pouring rain, and we’d failed to see anything much. However, after a morning’s hard work on Saana, we drove out to Skibotn in beautiful conditions.
Skibotn is a beautiful village and it was a pretty special afternoon we spent walking around its little streets.
