Östalbodarna

I have been visiting Östalbodarna (close by Myckelgensjö lake) several times after getting back to Sweden from my stay in Norway. And I think I know why I searched and found this place (except from my natural curiosity for new interesting places to see). Still summer...   I think this place attract me probably because I … Continue reading Östalbodarna

Lofoten

Sitting here in Narvik this evening with stars in my eyes looking back at the last weeks adventure along Lofoten.

Norway bike hike (Part 4): Sognefjord

Finally my last post from last summer's bicycle tour in Norway. I guess it's about time since my next coming bike hike adventure tour is just round the corner. In the last bike-hike post I left Krossbu and was biking over Sognefjellet, and now the lovely downhill roads was waiting after the ascend upwards all … Continue reading Norway bike hike (Part 4): Sognefjord

Trollstigen cycle climb

Almost can't believe that I yesterday bicycled up Trollstigen with my cheap and heavy trek bike including luggage and a backpack. After a hiking day in Åndalsnes I headed back to work in Tafjord on my bicycle, and when people asked I said I most probably would walk up Trollstigen like I did last year, but … Continue reading Trollstigen cycle climb

When asked to work at the power and avalanche center in Tafjord again I did not hesitate - of course I would! First I had to fly over for a short visit/stopover at my  family's place on … Continue reading Hurtigruten MS Polarlys

Norway Bike Hike (Part 3): Sognefjellsvegen and Krossbu

Bicycling along Sognefjellsvegen Route 55 was nothing less but spectacular! If I had stopped for everything I considered "picturesk" - I would still be up there!   So, after a couple of days in wonderful Lom I packed up my tent, saddled my bicycle and continued towards Sognefjellet. In glittering sunshine I started on the … Continue reading Norway Bike Hike (Part 3): Sognefjellsvegen and Krossbu

Norway Bike Hike (Part 2): Galdhøpiggen and Jotunheimen

So the bike tour continued to roll. I fully enjoyed this feeling of freedom with no obligations, no time to keep and no strict plan. I made a lot of stops, mostly because I was not able to shut down my always observing "photoeye" - everything is interesting! Just like during my warmup bikehike-tour to … Continue reading Norway Bike Hike (Part 2): Galdhøpiggen and Jotunheimen
