Sunny days


from Trondheim fjord to...
Finland and further to Mallorca
to get sun burned and enjoy some bathing as well (Cala Banyalbufar).
Sea + wine = always good time.
The island offers good hiking - this one is from a coastal walk to Port des Canonge
and this one from a walk to Estellencs
"Peru-like" area
Treas in towns, so nice. Regarding transportation on the island, it was super convenient to use local buses, that are modern, cheap, and frequent.
but back to Norway...it was time to come back to Tustna, to finish the ridge. A few years ago we hiked its eastern part (in the middle on this picture)
so now was the time to do the western part (from Haugen to Knubben and Jurtinden and back)
Hiking on Tustna is very scenic, as the mountains are growing directly from the sea.
Combination of snow, blue sky, blue sea and Trollheimen in background...
On the top of Jurtinden (857m)
Midnight moon at Røsvatnet - great camping area
Next to Tustna is Smøla island, very flat (max elevation of 67m), but scenic as well.
It is well-known for good fishing. I was mostly interested in sea trout. They hunt in these sea streams and I was really happy to get one.

Påske time

For many days, the sun has been shining... good time for the first spring river fishing on Nidelva (with nice catch of super tasty trout as bonus).
Easter - good time to head to the mountains to enjoy some spring cross-country skiing, grilling, wine, sun bathing, ice-fishing etc.
We spent seven days in a lovely cabin next to Flatningen lake, exploring nearby places (skiing in Rondane and Jotunheimen, fishing in Otta river, ice-fishing on Furusjoen).
Almost summer weather all the time, sometimes challenging to wax (klister needed), truly amazing...never seen so many smiling Norwegians
We reached one top as well (Formokampen, 1424m). It offers great view on Rondane
The top is easy to reach on cross-country skies and the downhill back is perfect.

The snow is slowly melting near Peer Gynt cabin...
From mountains to the sea - Easter monday trip to summer Aure to try some fjord fishing...
Not so much fish, but great time anyway.

Catching wind in Lierne

Despite crazy weather forecast (very windy), it was right time to discover another Norwegian national park. And because I was accompanied by Vlado, who loves arctic expeditions and tundra environment, I chose Lierne, remote and "small" park, characterised by its ice aged mountainous landscape. I also hoped in some good ice-fishing in local lakes.
After the night in Brattvoll Gård cabin in Holand, Lars Erik drove us with his snow-scooter 12km into the park.
From the forest, we moved up into the open mountains
direction Fiskløyshytta - our home for the next 4 days.
Strong wind started soon after our arrival...reaching its max speed on Saturday (26 m/s)

It is difficult to take a picture of wind, so here is short video from Saturday morning, when the wind was still relatively ok.
Short trip around the cabin before the wind hit us
Sunday was the expedition day - destination Akkavatnet
Cool whole-day trip (ca 15km in total) in sporadically difficult skiing conditions (especially on sport cross-country skies). We "visited" several lakes during the day (Litlflyen, Storflyen - navigation mistake, Holmvatnet, Akkavatnet, Vargtjønnin), however fishing was too challenging because of the strong wind.
"Real men doing real work" - Vlado made this great snow hole on Akkavatnet.
Sunday - half-day trip to Fiskløysvatna (12km in total). Perfect skiing in powder snow along the river-valley.
Wind on Fiskløysvatna was also strong...
Some quality time on Fiskløysvatna
And some unsuccessfull fishing as well...


And a few white pics from Vlado:
