Kabelvåg, Tjeldbergtinden – 22nd May 2016

How great does it feel, hot sun rays as you get out before breakfast! What a contrast to the grey, wet weather last night!

The locals in Lofoten can be very creative and artistic. You enter a public phone and you find a library. I guess there are not too many libraries in the world that are smaller.

Kabelvåg used to be the capital of the Lofoten islands in medieval times, this is where it started more than a thousand years ago. You can get an idea of life, economy and power through the centuries in the open air museum, which can only be recommended.

More recent tracks lead us away from Kabelvåg and into the beautiful nature, along a like and up the mountain Kjeldbergtinden. A first class 360 degree panoramic view in the finest sunshine. The beautiful coastlines with many bays and skerries, the snow covered, rugged mountains, wood- and wetlands, settlements … everything is shining under and around us.

After a couple of hours we continue with Antigua again, until we can enjoy a calm evening and night in the little port of Skrova.
