The Lyngen Traverse - it has been in my mind for almost two years, since I first visited my friend Pia-Maria in Lyngen in May 2015. Last year, me and my friend Anton had planned on doing it, but due to an infection in my fot we had to throw in the towel before we had e...

According to the book "Mountain climbs in Arctic Norway" from 1953, Rulten is the most beautiful summit in Lofoten. It is actually two summits (east Rulten 1062m, west Rulten 1035m) split by a narrow and steep ridge. I could easily agree as as the mountain is quite imp...

After the Alpine Meeting in Kjøpsvik we set off for the coast of Helgeland and Meløy. Øyvind Gjersvik who runs Meløy Adventure arranged a nice room for us at his lodge. Our first goal was Lille Blokktind, (984 m) a steep mountain in Rødøy. I was told by local historian...

Årets Alpin Klatresamling på Stetind hotell, i regi av Norsk Tindeklub, blev ett lyckat arrangemang med en grandios avslutning på Stetind i vindstilla och sol.

The last few weeks have been frustrating, to say the least. After a week of great pain, dosed on morfin, with neck collar and mostly laying dead flat on my back, I got to take the collar off. What a relief! In a few days the worst neck pain slowly subsided. I could sit...
