Hanging around the arctic circle, we did a road trip tot he Lofoten Islands to get some more “epic” (says Oli) hiking in.
The 7 hours drive that felt like two because the scenery was so beautiful and ever changing. It reminded Maeghan and Theresa a lot of Alberta, but the mountains are more rolling stones than jagged peaks.
Things got a little crazy when we broke our healthy eating habits and did a binge on alcohol, candy and treats. [Side note: the liquor stores here are crazy, they only sell alcohol until 8pm on week nights and 6pm on weekends, and tax booze based on the alcohol content. So… it can get expensive fast].
But we had lots to celebrate on this epic road trip —the views were such a treat and having the sun warm and around all night motivated us to do some more city / town walking at 11pm every night.
The pictures are a dump of incredible scenery that does Norway no justice. So if you like hiking/camping/adventuring… stop what you are doing and make your next vacation to Norway’s Lofoten islands.
