östalbodarna sweden fäbodvall mountain pasture

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
