Day 5 and 6: Nallo – Vistas & rest day

Light and shadow

by

After the Super-Nordlichtnacht we are already awake at 7:30 a.m. and still a bit excited and tell our Swedish hut colleague, who didn’t want to get up during the night, how intense the play of shapes and colours was. We have breakfast in peace, chat with the landlady and for the descent into the Visttavággi […]

When you drink a lot of tea at the hut during the cosy evening and then wake up in the middle of the night and know that you have to leave not only the warm sleeping bag but also the halfway warm hut, it is anything but pleasant. It gets better when you look out […]

Tour start in best mood and in best weather

We enjoy the breakfast, knowing that the next days we have to shorten our culinary time. After breakfast we clean up […]

Finally Sweden again 🙂 A departure on Monday has the clear advantage that we can pack comfortably at the weekend. The alarm clock at 3:30 a.m. is nevertheless very early. After preparing a small breakfast for the airport, Sissy and Karl take us to the airport at 4.15 – many thanks for the always reliable […]
