    Ridderspranget

    December 28, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ -6 °C

    Bei schönem Sonnenschein ging es nochmal raus. Nächster Wanderversuch, und heute erfolgreich.
    Es ging rund 4 km über verschneite Wege an den Rittersprung. Hier zwängt sich die Sjoa durch ein schmales Tal.

    Day 20: half way point

    June 26, 2016 in Norway ⋅

    I cannot believe I've been hiking for 20 days now!!! Feels like I just set out yesterday.

    Today I arrived in Gjendesheim mid day, at the bottom of one of Norway's most famous hikes, called Besseggen, which I will do tomorrow.

    The hike today lead me from the valley I had camped in over a mountain range with beautiful views and into the town of Gjendesheim, which consists of 4 huts and a ferry dock. And even though the water was freezing, I jumped in the lake to celebrate my first half of the hike, and warmed up at the fire in the tourist hut afterwards.

    I'm thankful for 20 beautiful days and can't wait to see what the next 20 have on store for me :)

    Day 21: the Besseggen quartet

    June 27, 2016 in Norway ⋅

    Today I did the much praised "Besseggen" hike, probably Norway's most famous trail. I was happy to spend the first half of the day with three new friends, two from Norway and one from Denmark. The four of us set out just before 8am, after a very good breakfast in Gjendesheim.

    We experienced 6 hours of fairly steep tracks and VERY indecisive weather (we had a back and forth from sunshine to rain at least 4-5 times), amazing views, fun scrambling and great company.

    After the hike together, I set off north towards a glacier (Glitterbraen) which I should reach in a day or two. As my legs need a break now, I've set up camp early at 5pm right by a lake and not more than 200 meters from a roaring waterfall (in picture 5). It might rain all night, so I'm glad I got my tent up in the sunshine and will make dinner soon. What a lovely day!!

    Maurvangeni kämping

    July 17, 2016 in Norway ⋅

    Saime koha täpselt jõe kõrvale, väga ilus koht, kuigi võiks vähem inimesi olla. Nüüd mõistan norrakate rasket elu: kuidas nad peavad kõrvatroppidega koskede ja kärestike kõrval magama ja muidu visuaalselt kaunites kohtades.

    Homseks oli meil plaanis 13km matk mööda Gjendebåtane järve kõrval oleva mäe tippu pidi. Selleks tuleks ka muidugi mäe otsa ronida. Otsustasime selle edasi lükata, kuna Kadri vist haige ja ei tea kas jõuame pärast seda autoga pikalt sõita - hakkame homme ja ülehomme Stockholmi poole liikuma. Matkamise asemel lähme ja sõidame selle järve peal laevaga.Read more

    Dzień 4

    July 17, 2016 in Norway ⋅

    Po dość wczesnej pobudce przejchaliśmy ok. 180 km znad fiordu Geiranger do położonego w samym sercu południowej Norwegii parku Jotenheimen, czyli domu śpiących olbrzymów :) Park obejmuje teren najwyższego masywu górskiego w Norwegii; na jego terenie znajduje się także najwyższy norweski szczyt. Po dotarciu na skraj parku wyszliśmy w góry na krótki, bo kilkugodzinny trekking do przełęczy Bessevegnet, gdzie na dwóch różnych wysokościach prawie stykają się dwa jeziora - błękitne Gjende i ciemnogranatowe Bessevegnet. A w drodze powrotnej natknęliśmy się na stado pasących się reniferów :) Nocowaliśmy po raz pierwszy 'na dziko', nad jeziorem Gjende.Read more
