Siberian taiga. We passed through the Pasvikdalen Valley, which is known to have Norway’s largest population of brown bears.
The border crossing at Storskog defines the limits of the Schengen area and is one of the most guarded borders in Europe. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to cross the border, but were allowed to take photos. Back in Kirkenes we made a stop at the Prestfjellet Mountain, which overlooks both the town and our waiting Hurtigruten ship.
