Ham­nes & Lyn­gen­fjord

On Satur­day evening we arri­ved in Ham­nes just in time to see a most ama­zing nort­hern light. A green spi­ral with some pur­p­le edges was dan­cing in rapid move­ments over the sky. Stun­ning!

And so was the fol­lowing day. A gol­den morning in Ham­nes on the island of Uløya. Hiking opti­ons are vir­tual­ly end­less – as far as you can walk or as time allows.

Crui­sing out of Lyn­gen­fjord was just as impres­si­ve and beau­ti­ful. The wea­ther chan­ged rapidly from gol­den sun­light to dark grey snow squalls with a hint of pur­p­le. Ama­zing and quick­ly chan­ging light con­di­ti­ons in front of the sce­nic back­ground of the Lyn­gen Alps.
