Touring in Lofoten

As a season finale trip this year we decided to go to Norway for some touring adventures. James Winfield, an old friend I met in NZ, teamed up with us and we took the Volvo on a roadtrip up to Lofoten. From Bodø we decided to take the shortcut by ferry, 4 hours straight out across the sea. Such an amazing scenery from that boat.
In Lofoten we skied a lot of cool mountains with epic views over the ocean. Most of our runs were in slushy spring conditions, but we even got to ski fresh snow on some of the north faces. Every day after skiing we put up our tent on a beach along the road and had nice bbqs before falling asleep in our tent. Life at its best!
If you havent already been to Lofoten, go there!
