Norway is almost all coast and the roads are narrow and old.

So of course there are many boat enthusiasts here.

In Kjerringöy about one hour drive from Bodö you can see these boats once a year.

In 2016 I was lucky to see these old boats in Kjerringoy Harbour.

I will add more articles from Kjerringoy on this blog so stay tuned.

Lets leave the old and visit Korgen Mountain today 2019.

On top of this mountain you will find paths to walk i all directions, mountain lakes with an increadable view. Peace and quiet.

In the fall you can pick lingonberries and mushrooms.

Ask about the fishing opportunities in the mountain lakes.

Norwegians are known for going on a "Tur" or going for a walk in the wild.

In Scandinavis there is something called "Allemansrätten" It is a law that gives permission for all people to walk free in the wild. (in a responsible way)

The untold rules are:

You bring all trash with you when you leave, and leave no trace that you were ever there.

Respect nature.

Korgen Mountain has lots of paths to walk or if you like to explore alone.

In the summer there are sheep walking free.

Korgen Fjällstue is a Motell that are open from Easter until the road is closed in November when the snow is too much.

There is a big, free parkinlot for campers, trucks and cars to park for an hour or a weekend.

Korgen Fjällstue serves breakfast and dinner from 12:00 pm, wich is something that is uncommon in Norway.

Usually hot food is not served until later in the day.

The restaurant has fabulous oudoor-seating for sunny summer days.

A room for 2 people with a bath cost 850 NOK

Breakfast cost 75 NOK

Extra bedding cost 100 NOK

At the moment the owner is expanding with a sauna and exclusive cabins to rent, call them for information.

The road that is the detour over Korgen Mountain instead of through Korgen tunnel has a bloody past. It is "The Blood Road" You can stop and read info on the way up or at the top by Korgen Fjällstue. (

Norway is a Beautiful Place, especially Northern Norway, but this country has a dark past. This week I decided to visit Korgen Mountain, a mountain about an hour South of Mo i Rana. Follow E6 from Mo i Rana (the main road) to Korgen. Then, instead of driving through the tunnel you take left, right and then right again. Now you are on the old road over Korgen mountain.

This will take you over Korgen Mountain on "The Blood Road" Jugoslavian prisoners built this road.

During a few months 1942-1943, two prison camps were built. One on each side of the mountain.

One camp was at Osen by Luktvatnet on the south side and one in Fagerlimoen by Korgen on the north side of Korgen mountain.

Hitlers goal was to build a road through Norway so that he did not have to go by sea for his planned invasion of Russia.

1123 prisoners worked on the road over Korgen mountain, 627 of them died.

Some were beaten to death others were shot or died of sickness or from the elements. A few locals managed to smuggle in food and clothes to the prison camps or many more prisoners would have died. The men that died were buried by the camps.

In 1944 the road was finished and the prison camps were closed. 309 prisoners survived and were transfered to a new prison camp by Pothus in Rognan.

The Germans refused to make the identeties of the men that died known.

Without an identety they were denied a burial by the church in Korgen.

1953 the bodies of 205 unidentified Jugoslavian men were moved to the Jugoslavian war cementary in Botn in Saltdal.

There is also the Blood road museum in Rognan in Saltdal. (
