Mind the gap

All Mountain weekend, Reinnesfjellet slick rock, Norway

Since we´re far up in the arctic we might as well go to Norway. I love the Swedish mountains but Norway is something complete different. That might sound strange when we´re so close to each other. But really it´s a huge different, higher peaks, steeper mountains and the fjords.... About one hour drive from Björkliden… Continue reading All Mountain weekend, Reinnesfjellet slick rock, Norway
