The perfect day in Trollheimen

It just became the perfect Speedfly day, and the best flight this year. Almost everything was good, except hard to find a exit point up on the mountain. The weather-forecast was ok, but warning about fog up in the mountains. The fog was coming and going. Got joyful 10 minutes flight from 1500 m down…

Film: Summer Fun

A summary of some few speed flights on Helgeland area and Troms county. Was wishing to do some more flights, but the weather conditions put it down. Anyhow, I had some good fun close to Svartisen, Sandhornøy and Salangen. Music from Clubroot – Left Hand Path.

Hattfjelldal “Express”

First week of August I had the pleasure to join a group of five men from Narvik, to do a 160 km long walk through Hattfjelldal. This valley or area,  is a very nice mountain area in Nordland county. Never been there before, and when they asked me earlier this year I could not say…

Midnight Sun Skydive Boogie

It has become a tradition to join the Midnight-Sun Skydive Boogie at Elvenes airport Northern Norway. And this was one of the goals driving North this summer. At least one week. Meeting good friends and happy skydivers. Most people are coming every year which makes it to a very nice event.

Helgeland coast – Northern Norway

The summer is still on, and have had three and half week up in Northern Norway on different spots and activity. First week was dedicated to Helgeland coast and mountains. I wanted to get better know to this pearl of nature. Rødøy island was my first goal. Had tried to get there several years but…

Svartisen reconnaissance – Sandhornøy

Never been on Svartisen glacier, and still have not been there. I was supposed to do a training trip up there in August, with a British adventure man who is planning a polarexpedtion. So on my way up through Helgeland I did a reasearch for a route up on the Eastern side, and not the…

Skydive weekend on Bjorli

Decided to go for skydiving at Lesja Int airport last weekend. The weather was one reason. The people the other. A small team of about 10 – 14 skydivers where there during the weekend and they had 40 lifts in two days. Due to small airplane it became lots of low level jumps. Anyway, last…

Speedflying in Lake District

Had some very good days in Lake District or more specific, Buttermeer. The Buttermeer Bash Festival was going on. Why go there? It happened on our way to the South Pole before Christmas last year, Ros, one of the participants, ask me to come and visit them in Lake District. A big Paraglider & Speedrider…

The beauty of Andøy and Lofoten, Springtime!

I had the pleasure to visit Andøya and Loftoten for a week, end of April into May. Spring time and up to 18 degrees C. Had some really nice moments, both with friends and nature. On Andøya it was some difficult days with the wind which scared me off, but good flights anyway. Did a…

Stetinden and Tysfjord experience

Finally I manage to do a kind of a flight up in Stetinden. Been there several times during the winter without luck with the weather. The plan was to Ally canoe into the starting point in Tysfjord, to manage to ascend Presttind south of Stetind and fly from there into Stetind and climb to the…

A special day in Trollheimen

It should appear to be the best day for ski and air activity in Trollheimen this winter. Had been dreaming about flying from a special mountain since last year. Snofjellet or Snowmountain. That peak is the one I have been most on in my youth.  Had already tried it this winter, without luck. Again the…

Good fun in Trollheimen

Finally I got some few days at home in Surnadal. That gave the opportunity to visit the winter mountains in Trollheimen.Got some good training which was one of the main reason to go there. Mt Snøfjellet was the main goal, but the weather window became too short.  Luckily I could chose from top level of…

Winter in North

It has been a great winter, and it still is. In Hell area you definitely see and feel that the Spring is on its way at the moment. Anyhow, most of the winter I have been in Northern Norway. It is the part of Norway I like most. The scenery is breathtaking and raw. The…

First down Priestley Glacier

Ten years ago i finished the descending of the Priestley Glacier as the first one, hopefully the last one 🙂 It became worst than a nightmare for me. I was prepared for very strong wind or hurricane, on my way down. That became not the biggest challenge. Crevasses bigger than houses and snow bridges became…

Clingman Peak – 10 years ago.

10 years ago, 21th of January was one of my best days ever. After about 77 days on the ice I finally saw the first mountain on the other side of Antarctica. 75 kilometers away I could see the contour of a mountain. For several days I have imagine that I have been seing mountains,…

South Pole memorial trip

It was time to team up with David Hempleman-Adams on a new trip to the South Pole. David had organized a Shackleton memorial expedition celebrating the Centenary of Ernest Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, and I was helping out with practical things during the journey. On the other hand, but not so important, it was 10 years…

NEW – Gallery

Have been thinking of a gallery on the webpage for some time. Or more than what it is space for in the margin. There is so many picture appearing when looking into 20 years photo archive which even I have not seen. So the plan is to show some of them in the Gallery menu…
