Nykvåg (31/08/2019)

Brief windy walk near Nykvåg on Langøya (Vesterålen).

Whale watching (30/08/2019)

Long term plan came true with a whale watching trip from Andenes, Andøya (Vesterålen). We were close to two different sperm whale (Potthval, Physeter macrocephalus) individuals, among them local celebrity "Glenn" twice, and saw others blowing from a distance.

Kvasstinden (30/08/2019)

Kvasstinden (705m), the highest peak on Andøya (Vesterålen).

Riven (29/08/2019)

Trail run on Riven, above Husøya (Senja).

Hesten (28/08/2019)

Hiking up Hesten (520m) from Fjordgård, Senja for a perfect view on Segla (590m).

Skøyteneset (27/08/2019)

Short hike from Mefjordvær (Senja) to Skøyteneset, passing an ancient execution site.

Heia-Henrikshovvatnet (26/08/2019)

Short hike to Henrikshovvatnet from the ancient settlement site Gjeska at Sifjorden, entering Ånderdalen - Senja's National Park.

Heading north (23/08/2019)

Heading north to meet good friends on Senja. Stopover at a massive rock slab that can be seen from E6.

Sweden (24-27/07/2019)

What do to with remaining vacation days and an injured dog? Roadtripping Sweden! Culinary quite an improvement compared to freeze-dried meals.
Östersund, parts of the so-called Villmarksveien, and partly in the middle of nowhere. Plenty of rivers and lakes but poor Puck was not allowed to swim. Also plenty of knots, moskitos and horseflies, repellents are a must.

2nd Rondane attempt (22-23/07/2019)

The odds were against us. Our second Rondane multiday hiking attempt ended too early, too. On the first evening, Puck probably slipped on a sharp rock and suffered two deep cuts in one hindpaw. We concluded he should see the vet. We made our way back to the car the next morning, carrying him parts of the way. As a consolidation, we saw a large herd of wild reindeer.
