Earlier this month I traveled North to Lofoten, Norway. I've traveled to many places but this is one of the most picturesque areasI have ever been to. We had hoped to get some ski touring in but also knew it was a bit late in the season to ski. We headed Northfrom Are, Sweden, (where I will be spending my summer this year) on a 9 hour drive and then a 3 hour ferry ride from Bodo, Norway to Lofoten.

Reine Barkered and I decided to stay in a small fishing town called Reine. We had seen photos if this area and it just looked amazing. Even though we were going in between seasons it was still beautiful! I can only imagine how amazing it would be mid summer. I found a little seaside cottage to stay in, there they called them Rorbuer's. The view from our kitchen table was breathtaking!
Not a bad place to sit down for a meal!
We arrived in Reine around 5pm and it was a clear sunny afternoon. Since we were so far up north above the Arctic circle to be exact we decided we should take advantage of the sun and the long days and embark on a little evening journey. Around 8pm we made it to the top of the hike just in time for this amazing view of the Reine area.

The next day we woke up and it was typical Scandinavian weather. The clouds had come in and even though the views were not a great as the day before we decided to head out on another little hike.
It was the perfect little journey right before the last comp of the season. We headed over to Northern Sweden next for the last ski trip of the season!
