Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

problem is, that at 67° N and a bit south of saltstraumen is still the province of nordland...
the administrative center of nordland is bodo (spelled budo) but the images do not fit..
and it is not south of saltstraumen...
i just cannot find it and the norwegian coast is endless with all its fjords and stuff...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK, so the church is the Old Gildeskal Church just outside Inndyr. Is Inndyr the answer ?

No ... Inndyr is the Administrative Centre you mentioned earlier.

Almost, so you are a winner. The answer I was hoping for is the Gildeskal Municipality, of which Inndyr is the admin. center. Close enough for me.

Here is a picture for some clarification. The yellow pushpins show Saltstrummen and Gildeskal.

See how you go with these. On our recent trip we were supposed to go here but had to put it off. Next time maybe.
