Svol­vær, Lauk­vik – 04th Novem­ber 2016

Svol­vær is a good place to relax a bit. It is not the cent­re of the world. A nice har­bour, some art gal­le­ries, a bar made out of ice, sce­nic sur­roun­dings.

For us, it was the star­ting point for our visit to the nort­hern light cent­re in Lauk­vik. Situa­ted on the nort­hern side of Aus­t­vå­gøy, the­re is a free view to most direc­tions and not too much arti­fi­cial light. This is whe­re Rob and The­res from the Nether­lands have estab­lis­hed their pri­va­te nort­hern light cent­re. They are obvious­ly living their pas­si­on, ever­ything is cen­te­red around nort­hern lights. Rob has got a room full of tech­no­lo­gy, which he built all by hims­elf, to make „direct con­ta­ct with the sun“ and the nort­hern lights, as he uses to say.

And they do have good con­ta­cts to hig­her levels. As soon as the pre­sen­ta­ti­on was finis­hed, we saw some nice nort­hern lights 🙂

Kabel­våg-Svol­vær – 04th Novem­ber 2016

The wea­ther is and remains beau­ti­ful. Clear sky, gent­le free­zing tem­pe­ra­tures during the night, low sun, beau­ti­ful colours. The sun is cur­r­ent­ly going up after 8 a.m. and down again near 3 p.m. Of cour­se, we have a long pha­se of twi­light. Altog­e­ther still qui­te a bit of light. Cer­tain­ly enough to go out­side and do nice things. We made a nice walk from Kabel­våg to Svol­vær today. That is not too far, in theo­ry you could do that in one hour. Of cour­se we took more time, enjoy­ing the land­s­cape. Rug­ged moun­tains, a silent lake, open wood­land, litt­le wet­lands here and the­re. Some of us took the more spor­ti­ve rou­te over Tjeld­berg­tin­den, 367 m high. I didn’t, it wouldn’t be a good idea with a cold, but I know the gre­at view from up the­re 🙂
