Paradise Island – Andøya

All winter I have had a big wish about going to Andøya again.  It is something special with the nature up there. Brutal, spectacular, beautiful, wondering and friendly. Especially the people, concerning friendliness.  But the nature is just breathtaking and you can have five winters and five “summers” in one day. And everything is very local.…

Peak Spanstind

Finally got the opportunity to visit Peak Spanstind in Troms. Its about 1400 m and you have a nice skiing up in two and half hour. The weather was just perfect with blue sky, good skiing conditions and not much wind. Lots of other people were on the mountain this weekend too. So, a perfect…

Just sad I did not bring the tripod for the camera. Been several times up in the mountains but un-luck…
