Nordlandsbanen railway journey in North Norway

I love travel by train in Norway, especially long distance railway where you are guaranteed an overdose of scenic landscapes both under, over, in between and straight through the Norwegian mountain world.

Ryten hike in Lofoten

This hike includes spectacular views to the beautiful Kvalvika beach, with a possibility to make a roundtrip to walk along that tempting beach on a very hot day. But don't expect to be alone up her in high season. On our way up to Ryten we did a "lil detour" to visit Fredvangshytta cabin, it's tiny shed … Continue reading Ryten hike in Lofoten

Hiking Sunndalen mountain valley

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

Via Ferrata Loen

Shortly before the second bicycle tour from Oppstryn to Loen I found my bicycle punctured by a push-pin, and I had no mending-kit available at that time.

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.

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!

Norway Bike Hike (Part 1): Geiranger and Norddal

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
