Maybe the detour will be  "Hang Low or Climb High"   :lol:

Are the little red/white buildings common? I found one at the Skjomen bridge near Narvik (photo source).

I think the food task IS a Fast Forward. You can guess it from the title itself

Is it possible that the red/white bldg are navigation aides?

The only place where a bridge makes sense along the route from the Norwegian/Swedish border to the center of Narvik is the Narvik fjord.

Here is a list of bridges in Narvik:

Name                            Year     Status
Beisfjord Bridge             1957     in use
Hålogalands Bridge                  project phase
Hålogalandsbrua     2016     project phase
Skjomen Bridge      1972     


Here is a link to a road-level view of Skjomen Bridge from the south side of the fjord:  http://en.structurae.de/photos/index.cfm?JS=32543

and the longer range view is below along with a map of central Narvik showing 3 bridges crossing short distances.

Whatever their eating, I would guess it's one of these 5 popular Norwegian Christmas dishes.

It's probably the smalahove (smoked  lamb's head) that was mentioned on the first page of this thread and a couple of times since then.

It is indeed smalahove. Yes it is a traditional norwegian dish, especially in the western part. I have never tasted it, and probably never will. It looks disgusting, really!

Looking forward to Nat og Kat eating it :)

I remember Dhani Jones eating a sheepshead in Iceland where he was preparing for a Strongman competition and his trainers wanted him to eat a local delicacy. He was turned off by its appearance, but apparently the taste is pretty good.

It sure looks like a FF task, the one which Nat and Kat are trying to complete.

If that's the case, I suspect Nat & Kat will complete it, even if the appearance isn't much to look at!

I'm putting my money on a fast forward.
If the roadblock is the bridge thing, who would chose to eat whatever it is in a detour?

Really?

I personally think it's going to be a detour.

If Jill and Thomas kept their Express Pass, they could use it to skip the FF, and that would be very boring right?

Still can't get a good grip on "hildringstimen." When split it translates into mirage/hours. Most of the hits pertain to boats and boatbuilding; maybe the meal is served inside a boat shed.

I don't get you... why would Jill and Thomas want to skip a FF Task if they're actually going to complete it? I mean, with the FF you're definitely going to be in first.. why do you want to use your Express Pass on a non-emergency situation?

To get a super huge lead and to prevent other teams from taking it?

In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

 :duno: umm, may not be a restaurant as the google link say the business category (Eventbyrå) translates to "Event Companies" and this yellow pages listing lists this business in the same group as "flower shops"   :duno:

lol when you pause at 0:27 u can see phil's eyebrow  :lol3:
hhmm....the bridge is a roadblock 100%  cuz u can see right and the beginning michael walking on the bridge with roadblock clue.

i think katie & rachel and nat & kat are behind and katie says something about that she hopes (somebody) will have a panic attack and you can see nat crying and i think that is why they are gonna do FF (if there is a FF). HOWEVER you can see that the doctors are like somewhere inside something like a funicular or something like that.
