What: Street named after Knut Hamsun

Where: Knut Hamsuns vei, 8294 Hamarøy

Here it is: The street turns off the main road rv.81 between Presteid and Oppeid, right in the centre of Hamarøy.

Here we can feel, that we are in Nordland. The snow weighs heavily on Knut Hamsuns vei - and on Knut Hamsun himself:

"Snow and winter is to me an Evil. That a season exists, so uniquely alone in being horrible." (On overgrown Paths.)
