You don’t necessarily need great weather to enjoy the great outdoors in the northern parts of Norway. Landscapes still come out exceptionally beautiful despite fog and clouds, and makes it all look even more dramatic. This trip makes the perfect example.
We pitched our tents the day before, just by the foot of the mountain, Breidtind. Our night was notjng else but breathtaking, with the fog in the valleys and fjords and the midnight sun shining through the crisp air, touching our cheeks.
The day started out quite cloudy, and not too warm. Weird, because the weather forecast told us it was going to be a sunny day. Well, let’s just say it’s not the first time the clouds show up unexpected. Norway is very well known for it’s rapidly changing weather.
With the great company of my boyfriend’s family and two of our dog’s, it all turned out to be an extraordinary day filled with fear, sunburned noses, laughter and steep ascents. We had to use our legs, including both our arms to get to the top. At least half of the group was seriously scared of heights, and really had to work with themselves to make the summit. Halfway up the steep hills, the sky opened and we could see the top straight up. It turned out the clouds was only laying low, and all the mountaintops above 800 meters were pricking holes in the sky. You obviously can’t get that on a sunny day!
