may dine at the 'Dampkjakken', or restaurant for the unmarried officials,
and usually get a bed there also (but enquire at Bod0). In the company's
store ('Handelsforretning') provisions, rugs, etc., may be purchased. __
A row to the (1 hr.) Rupsi Joki (p. 220) is interesting.
From Furulund we may walk by Fagermo, with its great buddling-
works, to (1 hr.) Fagerli (good plain quarters at Ole Serensen's, an excellent
guide), at the E. end of the Langvand, with the copper smelting-works.
Near it the Balmi Joki forms a fine fall, yielding electric power for Furulund.
For guides apply, if need be, to the director of the mines at Furulund.
The ascent of the 'Sulitelma (Lapp 'SulluiCielbma\ 'festival mountain')
from Fagerli takes 8-10 hrs. (and back) and is neither very fatiguing nor
dangerous. In li/2-2 hrs. we reach the plateau of Haukabakken (2185 ft.), with
a fine view of the Langvand, the Svartisen, and the Sulitelma group; 2 hrs.
more bring us to the foot (about 3280 ft.) of Stortoppen (6178 ft), the north¬
western-most of the three peaks of the Sulitelma, which stretches from
>I W. to S.E. After a steep climb of l'/s-2 hrs. over loose stones we reach
Yardetop, the W. horn of the Stortop (about 490 ft. lower than the latter),
and enjoy a grand outlook over a wild mountain region, with many glaciers
(Jcekna) and lakes. The Stortop, which rises opposite, can hardly be
ascended from this side; the first ascent was made in 1888 from the Sala-
Jcekna, which is wedged in between the peaks and descends S.E. into the
Leurodal (see below). The enormous masses of snow on the mountain have
forced the glaciers to descend 600-700 ft. below the snow-line. To the K.
of the Sulitelma group is the Olmajalos (5347 ft.), with the Olmajalos-
Jaskna and the Lino-Jcekna.
From Fagerli we may also ascend the Rapisvari (3172 ft.; 2 hrs),
with a fine view of the Langvand and the Sulitelma; or we may ascend
by the Balmi Joki to the (2'/t hrs.) Lommijaur, a lake at the S. base of
the Sulitelma, and follow its bank to the height (2789 ft.; 2y2 hrs.) between
it and the Leurodal, or Lairodal, where we have a characteristic view
of the Sulitelma, Sala-Jaekna, and Lommijaur. We are here close to the
Swedish border; to Kvickjock, see p. 389. — A fine pass crosses from
Fagerli to Rognan (see below; IV2 day; guide advisable, 8 kr.). On the
first day a well marked path ascends the Storfjeld (about 3770 ft.) to the
tourist-hut on the Vasbotnfjeld (poor quarters). On the second day we
row down the Vasbotnvand and walk by its effluent to Evinggaard or
Rokland, whence a road descends the Saltdal to (13 Kil.) Rognan.
From Fineidet we steer into the S. arm of the fjord to —
Rognan (Sperck's Hot.), the last station (stay of 1 hr.), at the
end of the fjord, on the left bank of the Saltdals-Elv. On the right
bank is Saltdals-Kirke.
From Rognan we may drive up the Saltdal, partly through pine-woods,
past Sundby, Almindingen, and Naevernces, to Rusaanoes (good quarters);
thence to Oosbakke in the Beierendal in one day, or to Bjsellaanses in two
days (comp. p. 217; horse 10, guide 6 kr. per day).
(3) From Bode to Bjerne, in the island of Landegode, 12 Kil.
N., the Foldenfjord steamer (Com. 404; p. 226) plies once weekly.
On other days we row (2-3 hrs.; 3-4 rowers), and land near gaards
Kvig and Sandvig, to ascend the Kvigtind (2595 ft.; with guide;
2-2!/2 hrs.), which affords a grand view of the whole Lofoten chain
(N.W.), of the Sulitelma Mts, (E.), and of the Hestmand and
