Norway

The major difference for me on traveling in Norway compared to most other countries is the level of interaction you do with the nature. In order to get a striking panorama, you have to work hard. On the other side, the reward you receive is more than enough motivation, and I highly recommend anyone to see the sites themselves.

1. Slogen

This mountain is iconic. It is one of those mountains that changed how we interact with nature. Explorers have come from all over the world to experience the mountain, and new techniques for understanding mountain climbing has been developen in the wake.

This is Linda sitting on the edge of a cliff, and behind her is the beautiful Hjorundfjorden.

2. The descend

Skiing is widely popular in Norway. The last five years, mountaineering with big skis have become very popular. This method is called Randonnee, and is a French word for hiking. Specialized ski equipment is used so you can walk up the mountain with your skis, and adjust them for downhill-skiing when you are ready to descend.

3. The Alps of Sunnmøre

This photo was taken many years ago with an iPhone 4s. 12 photos were stitched together to create this panorama of the mountains.

4. Mountain Moss

The mountains of Norway are ideal for the moss, it requires shade and lots of running water to grow. Moss is concidered an important part of the ecosystem.

5. Aurora Boralis

The Northern Lights are beautiful. I was fortunate to see them when I visited my sister who lived up north at that time. The color comes from  different particles in the atmosphere interfering with the waves from the sun, creating beautiful patterns in the sky.

6. Red Sky

As the sun was setting, a cloud flared up red. We were visiting Haukeliseter, a cabin south in Norway for some skiing.

7. Sunrise in the Mist

When hiking in Norway, you often end up walking along side rivers and lakes. We were sleeping in a cabin not far from where the picture was taken, I had to get up 4 AM to catch the sunrise and got to see the mist rise as the sun was heating up the ground. It was beautiful.

8. Trolltunga

A highly popular hike in Norway is to visit Trolltunga – The Tongue of the Troll. A rock sticking horizontally out of the mountain overlooking a peaceful lake.

9. Frog

This frog was enjoying the sun as it was rising.

10. -30c Skiing

This was in mid-January, we were retreating from the mountain after being lost. We had to break into a hunter’s cabin to seek shelter from the cold the night before. We were surprised by the weather, and unforeseen events. The sun was up 6 hours during the day, and it was freezing. Luckily we found these tracks at the end as the sun was setting.
