Taagaabu !

Just another week-end in Norway ... ... and a cabin trip to go with ;-) Not this one though: But another one, a bit further: Plenty of fresh snow, and an unexpected sun to warm up our souls: Hidden behind the snow ... But still not ours (cabin) ... just follow on ... Cross the magical forest and look for trolls: And climb ... ... again and again ... And all of this was worth it :-) The nice weather seemed to have been booked only for our journey to the cabin ... We managed to reach a close summit,... [Lire la suite]

Sonvasskoia # 1

Yeepee ... Another cabin trip! Back on skis, but for how long ... ? Very positive temperatures did not help to preserve the snow ... ... but we managed to find some, still :-) Mainly during the adventurous bridge crossing: ... since unfortunately the lake was not frozen enough to be skied. Though nice ! Well, we tried anyway :-) And here we are! And straight away, back on the skis for a "tur" :-) Interesting ... Darkness ... Hunger!    ... to be followed ...

Stabburet !

That was a long time without any cabin trip ... ... and we felt like a very traditional one would be perfect for that week end :-) Some 2h skiing, no tracks, and a superb sunset: ... before the storm starts ... 800 m from the end of the obvious way, and yes, we managed to find it :-) As you can imagine, it is a 2-people cabin :-) ... however very cozy! There was even some more snow on sunday, so that we needed to dig - again- our way to the toilet: ... and we finally understood why we spent more than 1h to... [Lire la suite]

Kamtkjønnkoia - day 2

We were such in a hurry to find a dry place and to eat our 3 star restaurant menu, that we had to wait until the following day to really enjoy the cabin surroundings: 1200 m above sea level, and a glacier lake just in front of our windows: A glimpse of the cabin, but if you want to know more, go hiking there, it is worth it ! And you might even be able to fill up the guest book :-) Starting the trip back: Simply enjoying being there ... The lock door towards the "lower" world: ... [Lire la suite]

Kamtkjønnkoia - girls trip !

Time to walk in the mountains ... 5 girls for the highest cabin owned by NTNU, and yes, that's incredible, but noone got lost. Well, it was maybe not obvious from the starting point: But we managed ... to get out of the forest and enjoy the nice view on lake Gjevilvatn under a messy sky. Wheather was not perfect, but actually not so bad in comparison with the forecast. As usally, hiking in Norway involves tricky rivers to cross ;-) ... and possibly some rainy sessions, walking in swamps with wet feet, by... [Lire la suite]

Agdeneskoia [swimming there!]

Main activity of the day: Well ... at least for some. However, a vast majority was only enjoying the sun, in a dry way: The perfect bed :-) Traditional lunch + cleaning, and for once, it is still good to go back to Trondheim ... biking :-) Let's go! Same bus boat stop ... Our previous speed multiplied by a factor 3 ... Yeepee ... !!! Takk for tur !

Agdeneskoia [fishing there!]

After a perfect breakfast, time to go hiking around the cabin: A natural bridge ... ? From the summit, cows as ants :-) The second activity of the day (eating is not an activity!): fishing ! Two different styles ;-) Take the result ... ... add some liquids ... ... make a nice fire ... and then BBQ is ready :-) The sunset was not too far, just 5 min away from the cabin, from the hill ... So that was about 23h30 ... And 2 hours later, just after dessert ... sunrise! ... [Lire la suite]

Agdeneskoia [biking there!]

One of the last week-ends before everybody leaves on summer holidays = cabin trip! Ooops, we did it again: Some 15 min to bike down to city center, a useful stop to fill up bags with nice food from the supermarket, and then waiting for the bus boat :-) Traffic jams of friends & bikes, all are enthousiastic. 25 min later ... lost in the middle of nowhere ... Time to ride the fjord ! That was easy: good mood ... ... and perfect landscapes ... ... good mood ... ... and perfect... [Lire la suite]

Stakkslettbua #2

Sunday morning, 2nd of May, 20 cm fresh snow. Time to wake up: ... and make its own path: The breakfast was incredibly sweet, spicy, tasty ... and chinese. The best compliment ever: noone talks, everyone eats. Chilling out on the balcony to make sure that we're back in the Norwegian mountains ... ... and investigate inspiring & healthy activities: Should I mention the spanish tortilla for lunch ? Well, let's just say this cabin trip might have been more a gourmet-tur rather than a real... [Lire la suite]

Stakkslettbua #1

Cabin-trip for the 1st of May, in order to celebrate the sun, the spring, the long days in general, and the non-working day in particular ! International team, with a perfect mix of Turkish, Greek, Spanish, Chinese, German, Norwegian and French people ... And it already seems funny :-)  As we were in an too optimistic mood, skis were on the backpack from the beginning. The cabin was supposed to be 1.5 km from the parking, that is ... let's say 30 min walking ... Well well well ... Weather was almost OK, and... [Lire la suite]
