Camp at Saltoluokta mountain station Once again I woke up early to the sound of rain falling on the tent, the weather had changed completely overnight and the beautiful clear evening last night had been replaced by thick fog and rain. Thankfully it stopped raining while I was going through my morning routine, still, the…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 21, August 16th 2018

Hike around Robberg outside Plettenberg Bay, ZA, January 5th, 2019

Tour of 2018 – Day 20, August 15th 2018

Camp along the Kungsleden 5km North Sitojaure Again I wake up early, and again to the sound of raindrops falling on the tent. Not very alarming at 6 am, I’m in no hurry to leave, yet looking out and seeing I’m literally camping in the clouds at 1100m was a little more disturbing. As I…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 20, August 15th 2018

Table Mountain on the India Venster Route, January 2nd, 2019

After a really good nights sleep, I felt the urge to compensate all my sitting on a plane the day before with a good chunk of hiking. Staying at a hotel downtown and with local transport being more of a joke, it seemed just right to start by walking the few km's up to the…Read more Table Mountain on the India Venster Route, January 2nd, 2019

Camp at Rapa Ätno I woke up rather early around 6 am after just 9 hours in my sleeping bag, no real rain during the night and I slept fairly undisturbed.

 Camp at Skarja Wow, what a night! It started raining around 4:30 pm yesterday and kept pouring down more or less intense the entire night and morning.

Akka cabin This has been a real rest day for me, slept in until almost 8am and, after taking down the tent, spent most of the am inside the cabin. Taking care of equipment, chatting with other hikers, drinking coffee and tea, and just resting. I totally needed this! The boat left at 2 pm…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 15, August 10th 2018

Camp at Ritsem Woke up rather early around 6 am, felt rested and ready to start the day.
