I also have access to a cosy mountain cabin (about 750 m.a.s.l) in Telemark, Norway based at the very foot of Hardangervidda, so me and … Continue reading Tinn in Telemark

Hiking Sunndalen mountain valley

I only met 2 hikers on … Continue reading Hiking Sunndalen mountain valley

Erdalsetra – Vetledalseter hike and lodge

Well, who the heck can resist a quick refreshing dip in crystal clear glacial river after a hot hike? Only Strynekåpa was watching.. I think 😀 Oppstryn. This pearl of a hike through glacial valleys and precipitous mountain sides is as long or as short as you want it to be, do a morning speed hike, a day … Continue reading Erdalsetra – Vetledalseter hike and lodge

Visit Stryn of Norway

So, there I was once again for the 3. summer, lashing my heavy packed bicycle in the car cargo room on Hurtigruten from Bergen. This time I spent only 1 night at MS NordNorge, and early next morning (devastated to miss that delicious breakfast-buffè onboard though) I disembarked at Måløy with my packed bicyckle and continued … Continue reading Visit Stryn of Norway

Rowing Workout Outdoor

So how to "keep in shape" while there's no access to a gym out here in the end of a fjord arm? I think I'm pretty happy about no gym here ... these days I actually find them pretty boring!) Instead it's hiking, uphill running, climbing and bicycling that are most interesting ..and available  ... and now … Continue reading Rowing Workout Outdoor

Hurtigruten MS Polarlys

Yeah! Finally back in Norway again! After just 2 days at home I again packed my bags and headed for Norway. When asked to work at the power and avalanche center in Tafjord again I did not hesitate - of course I would!

The goal was neither to go highest, deepest, fastest, furthest or toughest - I would bike, hike and rest whenever and wherever I wanted - no stress - just be!  Finally the time had come for my very own "10-day-moment" and my trek bike was packed and ready to roll on a roadtrip. The Norwegian highway … Continue reading Norway Bike Hike (Part 1): Geiranger and Norddal

Ålesund

Jag skall inte ens forsöka förklara hur årets första del har varit - nestan lite obeskrivligt. Kan bara konstatera att mina närmsta och jag varit genom mer än man trodde man skulle klara av... men just detta är inget jag tänker skriva om här. Iallafall, nu äntligen börjar vår förtvivlan, chocken och rädslan så smått ersättas med … Continue reading Ålesund
