Our next goal is to reach a place called Haukeliseter (about 200 km further north). We are planning on doing this in around 20 days, without any resupplying along the way. This requires having 7 days worth of extra food, since we normaly carry 14 days of food before resupplying. The load will be heavy, … Continue reading Planning ahead
We have now reached our first destination: Eftestøl, where we have left our skiing equipment for the next leg of our journey. Since the winter here in Norway has been awful this year, we had to go far inland to find enough snow to use our skiing equipment. Luckily, we found this lovely place up … Continue reading First destination reached
We always try to avoid walking along normal roads, staying as much as we can out in the wilderness. This way we will always find the mysterious and forgotten places, where nature and time has started to reclaim the things that are man made.

When doing a trip like this it is important to make the best of every moment, utilizing everything nature have to offer. So when it comes to building a campfire, why not build a stone couch? (Even though it’s just for one night)
We have now officially startet to walk from Lindesnes. We will be walking for about 14 days, before we get far enough inland to find stable snow conditions. From there we will pick up our skiing equipment and go skiing for the remainder of the winter.
Staying right outside the lighthouse at Lindesnes gave us the opportunity to talk with one of the two lighthouse keepers stationed there. Through my brilliant conversation skills, I managed to get us a private tour of the lighthouse at night. The lighthouse keeper eagerly showed us around, giving us a wonderful insight of all … Continue reading Private Tour
We have finally arrived at the southern tip of Norway, ready to start our fantastic expedition. We have made our first camp right outside the famous lighthouse, so that we can fully can take in the raw and unforgiving scenery.
