Climbing Lofoten

End of June and I had one week in Lofoten emphasized on climbing. Svolvær and the area around is known for it´s nice mountains and perfect rock.

Struves Geodetic Arc visit

Earlier this winter I had the pleasure to visit a navigational “monument” part of the Struves Arc. To be honest I had not heard about it before this winter, and when I had the chance, being in Finnmark, I had to go there. It was special place to come to  the little mountain named Luvddiidčohkka.…

1994 Greeland – 20 years

27th of March 1994 Rune and Torry started out from Umanaq on the West coast towards Isertoq on the East coast. The hardest one, Rune says.
