Re: Arctic Sweden-Norway (last April)

Hej Bjorn, you are lucky to have a cabin there, are you from Mo i Rana? I love the Vindalfjellet- I have walked it twice and skied it once. Do you know the Skidbäcksstugan cabin? I met a Norwegian woman who loves that place, she says she wants her ashes scattered there when she dies. It does have a ...

Asiago, the high plateau

We decided to have a white Christmas so we drove up to Asiago (yeah the cheese town), 1500 meters up on a high limestone plateau. Figured we would get in some nordic skiing on the 18km loop trail through the forest at the Rifugio di Campolongo (mtn hut). Surprised to find their restaurant open, and ...
