According to Hkr, which provides a more detailed context than Mork and Fsk, Sigurðr and twenty of his men spent the winter of 1138-9 in Finnmark, Norway, where they stayed in a cave near Fiskefjorden (Gljúfrafjǫrðr) and received provisions from a nearby farmstead. Sigurðr commissioned two ships from the Saami, and the Saami entertained him and his men in their turf hut.

For Sigurðr’s dealings with the Saami, see also Anon (Hsona) 2. — [8]: Echoes Þstf Stuttdr 3/6.
