Finnmarksvidda - tundra at the top of the world

Finnmarksvidda is a huge, fairly flat tundra area in northern Norway. At 70 degrees north it is a long way to the Arctic Circle at 66 north. Some years ago I made an attempt to cross Finnmarksvidda in winter with a friend, but bad weather forced us to turn around. That crossing was planned from Alta to Kautokeino. The latter has been called 'the capitol of Finnmarksvidda'. This time I started out in mid August from Lakselv, a small community on an icy fiord off the Arctic Ocean, heading for the elusive Kautokeino.
