    Ankunft in den Bergen

    December 22, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ -10 °C

    Nach ca.15 stündiger Fahrt plus Pausen und Übernachtung in Schweden, haben wir unser Ziel erreicht :-). Unser kleines Blockhaus liegt auf ca. 700m Höhe in Oppland westlich von Heidal.

    Das wir bis hier rauf gefahren sind, hat sich gelohnt. Unser Wunsch nach mal wieder weißen Weihnachten hat sich erfüllt.Read more

    Jotunheimen Alpine

    December 26, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ 0 °C

    Nach dem famliliären Weihnachten, musste etwas Bewegung her. Dazu wollten wir im nahen Skigebiet etwas wandern. Leider sind die Wanderwege hier im Winter gesperrt. Schneeschuhe für Loipen hatten wir auch nicht dabei. So blieb es bei ein paar Eindrücken vorne an.

    Day 8: dancing around lake Furusjøen

    June 14, 2016 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    This has been my longest mileage so far and it was amazing and I'm absolutely tired :)
    Starting early just after 7, I made my way through a few more hours on Skjerell mountain, taking another fairly long detour to go through a canyon in the north, hiking sometimes along small waterfalls and other times beside a fast moving stream, on its way to the large lake in picture 3 and 5 (which had been my view all day). Then I spent the next few hours right by that lake, only to climb up again and see it from afar for a few more kilometers.
    It was a warm day with little wind, so I had many flying friends around, but no bites so far, I think it's mostly little harmless flies.
    Tonight I'm sleeping without a rain cover for the first time, as it's supposed to be a clear night. I'm in the middle of the forest and enjoying all the sounds of the birds and the view of green all around. Hopefully it stays idyllic and dry, we will see ;-)

    Day 9: bittersweet stopover in Otta

    June 15, 2016 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 10 °C

    After a lovely night in the forest, with the birds singing, no trouble sleeping and thankfully no rain, I slowly made my way to Otta. It took a lot longer than I thought, since the trail was completely overgrown and for the most part untraceable. So I worked with my map and compass and in the thicker woods, I eventually ended up using some of the forest paths the lumber trucks use - which worked great.
    I got to Otta in the early afternoon, found a hotel and started my errands, like picking up my resupply boxes, planning my next 10 days, and washing all my clothes. I also took everything I hadn't used in the first 9 days and reassessed whether I could throw it out (see picture 6). The lighter the better, even though I feel perfectly used to my 20kg pack.
    My attempt to meet some locals and socialize over dinner failed - all restaurants were completely empty. So I got mine to go and had a wonderful Skype call with my mum over a burger and fries instead.
    Being back in civilization is good - I got into town and right away bought a basket of fresh strawberries. Things are convenient. But I can't help but feel like I'd rather be on some mountain in my tent right now ;) so this stopover is somewhat bittersweet.
    Tomorrow is my first rest day and I'll be lazy, reading books, planning my next resupplies, and writing my diary.
    This is a first: a post without a tent picture!

    Day 10: no hike, no backpack, no pics ;)

    June 16, 2016 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Today was my first break in the little town of Otta. I made 2 visits at the post office to ship on my resupply boxes to my next 3 stopovers, planned my next 20 days and enjoyed some fresh fruit from the local supermarket. The day was rainy, so I didn't mind not being on a trail ;)

    Day 11: gone with the wind

    June 17, 2016 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    Yippee I'm back on the trails!
    Today I started my 4-5 day hike to Hjerkinn, with a loaded backpack, into Rondane national park. It was very windy all day and my tent, too, is being pushed around as I'm writing my update right now. It was a lovely day, with old stone huts, many stream crossings, a few small snow field crossings and a few waterfalls.
    I'm camping near a tourist hut, which means I got to charge my phone while reading a book on my kindle in a comfy armchair and I can take a hot shower tomorrow morning :)

    Shopping im Outlet und Camper Treffen

    August 21, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Nachdem die Fähre 1h Verspätung hatte, sind wir erst um etwa 3.30uhr von der Fähre runter.
    Zum Glück konnten wir auf der Überfahrten schon etwas schlafen.

    Unseren Stellplatz für die Nacht erreichten wir um etwa 4uhr.

    Als wir dann beide ausgeschlafen hatten, gab es um 7.30uhr das erste Mal Frühstück im Camper.

    Unser Weg führte uns als erstes kurz unter Oslo in ein Outlet um noch überlebens wichtige Utensilien zu kaufen :-D

    Auf dem Weg dort hin konnten wir uns , modernster Technik sei dank, schon mit Niklas und Pauline über den heutige Stellplatz austauschen, welchen die 2 schnell gefunden hatten.

    Einzig ein paar Tunnel unterbrachen unsere Video Telefonie.

    So legten wir heute wieder knapp 400km zurück und kamen am reservierten Stellplatz um kurz nach 17uhr an, wo Pauline und Niklas die Stellung hielten.

    Ein weiteres Paar aus Freiburg samt Hund fand den Stellplatz wohl auch sehr nett und gesellte sich zu uns.

    Nun stehen 3 Fahrzeuge a 2 Personen an einem perfekten Stellplatz in ruhiger Lage direkt am Fluss.

    Einzig beim Angeln hatte wir heute kein Glück, deshalb gab es Hähnchen :-)

    Erster Rundgang

    December 22, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ -9 °C

    Unserer Blockhaus liegt am Südhang mit Blick auf das Tal der Sjoa. Nach dem wir angekommen sind und die Zimmer bezogen haben, geht es auf eine erste Erkundungsrunde. Im Winter kann man "nur" die verschneiten leeren Strassen entlang gehen. Die Wanderwege waren nicht passierbar.

    Wenn es kälter wurde, bildeten sich oft Eisblumen an den Fenstern.Read more
