We finally reached the high promontory which divides the Laxe from the Tana fjord, at the extremity of which is Nordkyn.
I replied I wanted to go as far as the land went north of me, as far as Nordkyn.
Midway between Nordkyn and Haparanda the snow was of great depth.
I was now in latitude 69° 35', and within a few miles of the longitude of Nordkyn.
But at last Nordkyn drew nigh, and at three o'clock the light became that of day, white and colourless.
