Stallogargo and the island side of the sea current between Kvaløya and Kvalsund. "STallo" is a natural formation, usually a big rock, which was used as some kind of altar for the Sami in former days. Today Stallogargo is famous for the seasonal herds of reindeer that cross the very strong sea current here.

Iš ko pragyvena žmonės tokiame nuošaliame krašte ?

Answer to Skrajunas, in this county, Finnmark: several nations are present: about 10000 Sami directly involved in the reindeer industry. + about 50.000 Norwegians whose ancestors have mostly lived here also for several centuries, intermixed with a substantial group of Finns, of whom some still speak their native language. So, in short- three groups: Norwegians are in absolute majority, some Finns and a few Sami. They live mostly from Fishing in the Barents Sea and also aquaculture is becoming important.
