Day 34 A last day of island hopping.
The midnight sun woke me up during the night, shining bright through the window. At 6.30am I was ready to leave. I had a last ferry crossing and wanted to be in Tromsø in the afternoon.
I enjoyed being alone on the road along the fjord. At the bottom of the fjord, I cycled through a valley connecting Mefjordbotn to Støynesbotn and arrived at the Botnham ferry pier around 9.15am. Thirty minutes later the ferry left Senja to dock 35 minutes later at the Brensholmen pier on Kvaløya.
After two hours of cycling along the fjord, the road followed an ancient glacier valley between the Nordfjord and the Kaldfjord. Around 3pm I cycled over the Sandnessund Bridge connecting Kvaløya to Tromsøya, came along Tromsø Airport and arrived at my hotel downtown Tromsø around 4pm.
After haven taken a shower, I walked over the Tromsø Bridge (Tromsøbrua) connecting Tromsøya to the mainland, came along the Artic Cathedral and took the Cable Car (Fjellheisen) to the Storsteinen viewpoint 420 meter a.s.l. and enjoyed the breathtaking view of the city and the surrounding islands and fjords from the outdoor viewing deck.
The weather forecast had been right and I was so thankful for a wonderful week of cycling on the islands. Harbingers of a weather change, clouds were still invading the sky.
