Værøy altså, denne lille øya tilhørende Lofoten er definitivt en av Norges perler 😍 Det var så fint der så jeg måtte lage et eget innlegg om denne vakre øya.
I will definitely go back here!
After a few days on Værøy, we took the ferry across to Moskenes in Lofoten. I then felt that I had to take a short trip home to visit my girls when my mother's heart only had to see Christine and Caroline. So then it was just a matter of driving through Lofoten and straight to Evenes airport for a few days at home.
The road goes back to Lofoten as soon as I can, because now I have received so many good tips for known/unknown gems and good people there that I can hardly wait to go back.
After a few super cozy days with my girls, I was back at Evenes airport. So then it was just a matter of putting on Google Maps and driving towards Vesterålen.
We started with Andøya,
which I have long wanted to visit.
Not far from Andenes, at the very end of Andøya, is Bleik, a fishing village with magnificent beaches and fantastic peaks to visit.
We chose to go Måtinden 408 m, which is a well-marked and absolutely lovely little summit tour.
We went up from Baugtua 3.8 km one way, and the easiest way up.
Det er og mulig å gå fra Bleik, da er turen noe lenger. Jeg må få med meg turen fra denne siden også, men det ble for dårlig vær denne gang, så jeg må helt klart tilbake hit også. Ikke minst for å få med meg en ribtur for å se hval. Det kan jeg virkelig ikke gå glipp av 😀
Jeg får ofte litt spørsmål om tur klærne jeg bruker, så her kommer litt reklame om det 😉 Jeg har på meg noen supergode sko fra Icebug. buksa jeg bruker mye på en litt kjølig høstdag fra Fjellreven. For ikke å snakke om min favorittvest fra Norrøna, den har jeg med meg overalt.
The jumper is from Devold and is an incredibly good wool jumper with a high neck.
Er det rart jeg blir helt rørt og takknemlig for å kunne få oppleve alle disse vakre stedene og herlige menneskene Norge har å by på 🥰🇳🇴
Nyksund was the next stop- A charming old fishing village where the first settlement was as early as the end of the 18th century, due to the fish-rich sea outside Vesterålen. In the 1970s, Nyksund was completely abandoned, but today it has had a fresh start with a few permanent residents and a year-round offer for tourists. Work is underway to further develop this location.
Nyksund consists of two islands which are connected by a 65 meter long breakwater.
Queen's route- A marked hiking trail between the historic fishing villages of Nyksund and Stø. Due to bad weather in the area, we didn't have the opportunity to go on this trip now, but I have to go back here too.
The trip is recommended to take the mountain road towards Stø and along the beach towards Nyksund.
There is a nice caravan park on a gravel road to the right just before the bridge over to Nyksund.
Along the outer side of Vesterålen, we stopped by Hovden in perfect weather. Fascinating to look at the beautiful powerful nature we have around us.
This area is a place I need to explore more, but I can see that autumn is starting to turn towards winter in the north and that I have to go home to change the tyres.
In addition, I will get my roof rack, so I can finally take the kayak with me on a trip.
Nå sitter jeg og varmer meg med havregrøten og stearinlysene. Godt å virkelig kjenne på de små gledene som dette campervan livet gir 🚐🍁
There is so much I haven't caught up with in Northern Norway, so I'm really looking forward to tackling what I haven't caught up with.
Thank you for the trip Thomas, the world's best travel buddy who joins everything that is fun.
The clothes I'm wearing here are: A thin and light down jacket from Twentyfour, headband from Twentyfour, trousers from Fjellreven and the good shoes above from Icebug.
On the trip south, I had been tipped to visit Ingeborgfossen in Botn, a little south of Fauske. A perfect break in driving and a lovely trip.
The trip then went on to Trondheim where I had a super cozy day of climbing and picnicking on the beach together with lovely Siri.
En ting til som måtte gjøres i Trondheim var jo selvsagt å padle på Nidelva 😀 Det var en utrolig fin padletur som jeg virkelig anbefaler hvis du er i Trondheim. Da kan man leie kajakk så man bare trenger å padle den ene veien. Dette var bare helt magisk☀️
Takk for at du følger meg på veien, håper du kan få noen tips til turer du har lyst til å gjøre selv😃Spør meg gjerne hvis du lurer på noe🥰
