In Search of Stories — Behind the Westcoaster Film

“The other side of the mountain however,” he continued with stars in his eyes. “It’s west-facing, you know. One kilometer of straight climbing, and not one rotten section.” Instantly my mind wandered to the western fjord-ridden coast line of Norway. And I saw the dark storms; the hurricane gales bringing along a whipping sea spray, […]

Island Hopping in Greece — Bringing the Vanlife to Kefalonia

Island hopping in Greece is a concept that evokes a certain dreamlike adventure mode in many of us. Combine that with an absolutely amazing sunset, a visit by a local goatherd, followed by an early waking with the sun.

Mount Cook to Milford Sound — A New Zealand Road Trip

First stop is Mount Cook. A drive through a valley and a small trek up a hill and we get to the glacier lake. Mount Cook blew my mind, but turning around and seeing the valley we drove through to get there took it to the next level. I love it when nature just shows off like this.

Røldal Part II — Hike to the Heights

We were driving down the road towards the hill, and we passed one of the larger waterfalls in the area. The way it carves its way through the cracks in the mountains, and cascades down into a pool of crystal clear turquoise water, blew me away the first time I saw it. Next time I saw it, it blew me away again.

Besseggen Part II — Norway’s Most Infamous Hike

Besseggen was a long anticipated hike for me. In Norway it is kind of infamous. People die there, people bleed there, people leave their hearts there as victims to the beautiful views.

Besseggen Part I — The Road Goes Ever On and On

I was invited along with a small crew of three on a road trip. The goal was to be Besseggen, a very popular Norwegian hike. Starting with a train ride from Stockholm to my friend’s house in Norway, we were supposed to continue on a three hour road trip. It did not take three hours. The reason: […]

End of the Road — a Trip to Lofoten

There, the mountains rise just a bit steeper, and the ocean waves rise just a bit more often and a bit higher. There the natives speak just a bit more refined North-Norwegian dialect, and the mists cling just a bit tighter to the mountain tops.

Lost in the Mist

The mists lay low around the mountain tops at the place we are aiming for, and the roads are ripe for driving. Miles of asphalt will be covered, and traces of our rubbery wheels be spread from the Southern Coast of Norway, far into the misty mountains.
