Reka (01/09/2019)

Finally we got to hike Reka on Langøya (Vesterålen), even so we still did not climb the top. Reka is named after its impressive silouette that reminds of a spade blade.

Nykvåg (31/08/2019)

Brief windy walk near Nykvåg on Langøya (Vesterålen).

Kvasstinden (30/08/2019)

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

Hesten (28/08/2019)

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

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

Dinner with a view on Ruten (1040m).

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.

Rondane (18-21/07/2019)

We had plans to hike in Rondane for about a week but the odds were against us. After the first night in the tent, our almost new Jetboil stove did not light up - clogged jet. We had to return to the car and get it cleaned in Oppdal. Never again without a backup stove! We spent two rainy days relaxing and reading before we started a second attempt.
