We are going fast and hard, so to reach Vardø before the snow conditions become more awful than they already are. Rivers and streams are opening up almost beneath our feet as we go along. So we cover around 40 km each day, so to not become trapped by flooding rivers. In just 3 days we crossed the Varangerøya national park and are finally on dry ground. Arriving at the northern end of the Varanger peninsula, at a place called Persfjord, from here we can walk on the road the last part to Vardø.
