Norway - The Far North (Chapter)
This is the The Far North chapter from Lonely Planet’s Norway guidebook.
The northernmost counties of Troms and Finnmark arc across the very top of Europe, where broad horizons share the land with dense forest. Like most of the relatively few visitors who make it this far north, come in summer to enjoy Tromsø; the museums of this sparky, self-confident place will orient you for the Arctic lands beyond.

- visit the museums, parliament and knifemakers to learn about the unique culture of the Sami in Karasjok
