I left the tourist building at North Cape and headed a little further, just in time to see these reindeer going for a stroll. Even with my telephoto lens, this is the closest I could get, however, I think it is cool enough to post on RedBubble.

Seeing reindeer on the street, certainly above the Arctic Circle, is a common occurrence in Norway, in fact by the end of my trip I was pretty blasé about it all, realising that the coach came to a really abrupt stop most likely because there was a reindeer on the road… I somehow think though that if I do ever venture that far North again that it will probably be awesome again… at least for the 1st week :-P I would have been surprised to have NOT seen them up in the wilderness in Nordkapp, but they seem to know to keep their distance from the visitors centre.

    Great shot mate! I live here and never seen one. You’re a very lucky person!

  • Thanks! To be fair I have never seen them in Sweden. Saw a moose once, somewhere between Skellefteå and Piteå… I know that covers a lot of ground but it was a long drive, lol. Go over the polar circle in Norway though and you cannot miss these. The buses I went on to get here and there kept stopping for reindeer on the road… there were some in people’s gardens too in the few houses here and there but these were the first ones I could really photograph. As yet I have not got the “blue nose” (gone north of the circle) in Sweden but one day…… if I see reindeer then I can dedicate the photo to you! :-)
