Mustadkroken

Mustadkroken

Last weekend I unexpectedly went on a hiking weekend with DNT (the Norwegian Tourist Association). I had tried to sign up for this trip earlier, but it was full. Thursday at 22:30 I got an email saying a place had become available. I decided to take it 🙂 so I left work a bit early on Friday to buy some food and pack my backpack. We took the bus to SollihĂžgda, about 45 minutes outside of Oslo. It was only…

Skarvassbu

Skarvassbu

A couple of weeks ago I went on a weekend trip with two friends, to Skarvassbu, the only cabin on the mainland near TromsĂž that I hadn’t visited. We drove to the parking place of the ski slope and made our way up Krokelvdalen from there. It had been getting colder in the week leading up to this trip, but we were still surprised to see how much ice there was – frozen rivers and frozen waterfalls everywhere. We took it…

Snarby to Nonsbu

Snarby to Nonsbu

Yesterday the weather was stunning, and I was lucky enough to have the day off! Paul was able to take a day off work as well, and we decided to go for a long ski trip. We started from Snarby and headed towards Nonsbu. It was so sunny and so beautiful, everyone we met was smiling widely – it was a perfect day 😀 We stopped at Trollvassbu (only 4 km from Snarby) for a quick lunch in the sun,…

Nonstinden

Paul came back from sea last weekend, and after resting a bit, we decided to make the most of the forecasted sunny (and warm!) autumn weather. We drove to TĂžnsvik, and reached the cabin at Nonsbu after just over 2 hours, in cloudy but dry weather. It was Sunday night, and there was only one other guest in the cabin. The cabin has 2 parts, and plenty of space, so this wasn’t a problem 🙂 On Monday morning we woke…

BlÄkollkoia

BlÄkollkoia

As a preparation for our planned hut-to-hut ski trip for Easter, we decided to take a short trip to a cabin called BlĂ„kollkoia. We’ve visited the cabin once, but that time we only ate lunch there. It’s a very small cabin with only 4 beds, so we were always a bit nervous planning a trip here, as it can easily fill up (you can’t reserve these huts). After a lot of bad weather, we thought surely nobody else had planned…

Signaldalen to Dividalen

Signaldalen to Dividalen

For a while, we’ve wanted to explore the skiing/hiking tracks in Indre Troms, the area near the border with Sweden. There are several huts there, linked by marked paths – ideal as we didn’t fancy hiking with a tent and cooking gear. My parents were visiting us the week before we planned to do a hiking trip, and they offered to drive us to wherever we wanted to start, so we could leave our car where we wanted to finish….
