Tysfjord is one of the larger fjord systems in this part of Norway. We cruised to the very end of the fjord to Hellmobotyn. Some of the local Sami have summer homes in this area. Although it was a very overcast and rainy morning, we decided to still join the naturalist on a 3 mile hike to the base of a huge waterfall. We walked along the meadow, across a rushing mountain stream and into a sparse boreal forest. The wildflowers were blooming in the undergrowth. Fortunately the rain stopped part way into the hike. (The Norwegians have a saying - There is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing!)



In the afternoon we cruised past some islands with huge nests of kittiwakes high on the rocky ledges.
