Mandag – Rundefjellet
Den tredje skidagen ble vi guidet fram til det Runde fjellet, Rundfjellet (823 moh). Et mer spektakulært navn på fjellet er det samiske Suolovarri. Her ble vi møtt med sol og vind om hverandre. Capser som fløy og sports BH-er som ble luftet. Vi fikk prøvd oss på å grave lunsjplass i le-terreng, og la meg si, det var som å sitte i godsofaen hjemme. Mot toppen ble skiene lagt vekk og turen fortsatte med skisko og staver til topps. Nedover hadde snøen blitt varmet opp og det var som å kjøre på smær, selv i skogseventyret mot slutten. Alt i alt en karakterbyggende tur.
Tuesday – Henningsvær & fishing
Tuesday we went for a drive to Henningsvær, a small fishing town twenty minutes away from Kalle. There were shops and houses lining the sides of the fishing docks in bright colours and crystal clear water. We went for a little walk around the small town to see the charming coffee shops, drying fish, and watch the fishing boats. Later in the day we left from Kalle out on Symra a wooden bright yellow fishing boat to catch cod. It was sunny for the whole trip and we caught seven Atlantic cod, the heaviest weighing in at 7.8 kg. After four hours on the water we went back to the cabins and made a traditional Norwegian dinner of potatoes, carrots and mølje made out of fresh cod.
Onsdag – Pilan
Den siste skituren ble tilbrakt sammen med Sunnmørsalpene-klassen, våre gode reisepartnere. Med tidlig start og håp om sol møtte gjengen opp med godt sinn. Dagens destinasjon var Pilan (755 moh). Solen tittet frem sammen med panzerskaren. Her ble fellene testet, og kickturns kunnskapen fra tidligere turer ble satt på prøve. Smilene på storgjengen gikk nesten rundt etter fantastiske dager på ski, som alle har inneholdt et vakkert klasserom, mye glede og fantastiske opplevelser.
Thursday – Surfing in flakstad
Thursday morning we packed up and said goodbye to kalle, driving 1.5 hours down to Lofoten Thursday- surfing in flakstad Thursday morning we packed up and said goodbye to kalle, driving 1.5 hours down to Lofoten beach camp, a small surf shop nestled between mountains and a long white sand beach, this is where we would surf for the next couple days. We hopped into our wetsuits, grabbed our boards and headed out to catch some waves. After about four hours of paddling, balancing on surf boards, and playing in the waves we headed back to the hot showers and heated cabins to warm up and get some rest for the next day of adventures.
Friday – Kvalvila beach
Friday we went to look at the waves and surf at Skagsanden before driving to Fredvang where the trail to Kvalvika beach started. It was a four kilometre hike along wooden boardwalks, snow and loose rocks. As we reached the highest point of the hike the beach started to come into view. There were deep rolling turquoise waves, and a gorgeous sandy beach between two steep cliffs. We could see the sun coming around the left side of the beach and reaching out from behind the dark storm clouds. Down on the beach we got to explore the small hut built only from things found there. It is where the film ‘North of the sun’ was filmed. The film is about two Norwegians who stayed in this hut for nine months, living a rural lifestyle and surfing some of the best waves in Norway. It was very interesting to see the cabin after watching the film and all the pictures, notes and mementos from others who had stayed or visited the cabin. On the way back to the parking lot we could see the small islands in the middle of the fjord as the sun set.
