#1: 68N16E

(visited by J-P Hagström and Ulrika Vejbrink)

22-Jul-2001 -- After visiting Saltstraumen, and on our way to Lofoten, we wanted to take our first confluence point. Being in a very mountainous area with a lot of fjords, we were afraid that the point would prove to be unreachable.

As it turned out, 68N16E is in a beautiful spot and has a great view (image #2). We parked our car 1000m south of the point and had an easy walk up the hill to the spot.
