From Kabelvåg to Trollfjord – 21st May, 2017

Not having the northern lights at this time of year does have advantages – you can get some hours of sleep before starting to hike from Kabelvåg to Svolvær. It seems to have been a long winter here in Lofoten, just as in Spitsbergen further north. There is still a lot of snow in the terrain, it is wet, and lakes are still largely frozen.

The white beaches on Skrova bring a strong contrast to that, having a tropical appearance. And sailing northwards in Vestfjord gives us later the feeling of being somewhere in the Carribean. A good life under a wide, open sky!

In Trollfjord, the scenery does, however, not leave any doubt that we are in north Norway. Also here, there is still a lot of snow.
