I wonder why Svartnes is named after the colour black.  There is not much black here to be seen in this little farming village in Troms.  In the 1800s this place used to be one big farm housing a few families.  Today it is off the beaten track and can be fenced off from civilization because of avalanches.  Svartnes faces the Southern sun and boasts lush green pastures.  The fjord comes right up to the fields.  The view across the water to Balsfjord is certainly lovely.
