I will be on Lofoten now for more of less the whole of September. Hopefully the weather is as good as the previous two years, as I have put together a pretty long ‘to-do’ list of mountains to hike. And I have a few mountains I need to hike again, hopefully with some better weather, to add more hiking guides to this website, as it seems there is some new competition out there these days.
I want to try and remain on Lofoten as long as possible, especially as the chance for northern lights grows with the ever darkening nights of autumn – the best displays always seem to be the day after I leave, so I suggest scheduling at trip for the beginning of October! 🙂
But it will be a long trip down from the north car, and not knowing what the weather may due, I might be forced south a bit earlier than planned. Plus, this will be my first ever opportunity to visit central Norway by car, and there is a huge list of place I want to see or re-visit from my hitchhiking days of years gone by.
