Sailing with MS Bitihorn in Jotunheimen

Jeg elsker at fordybe mig i Den Norske Turistforenings magasin, Fjell og Vidde samt i deres årbog
I Fjell og Vidde hentede jeg den første inspiration til de vandreture, som jeg arrangerede for min familie.

Mari Valen Høhjelle har skrevet en artikel i Fjell og Vidde om Olav Saue, som reddede sit liv, fordi han vidste, hvordan han skulle klare sig i fjeldet.

Se Maris blog her

Vejret i fjeldene er omskifteligt, og jeg har med stor fascination læst beretninger om ekstreme vejrhændelser.
Når kraftig vind presses ned over fjeldene, kan der under specielle forhold opstå meterhøje vandsøjler på fjeldsøerne.

På vores tur til Eidsbugarden var der kun tale om nogle kraftige regnbyger. Godt vejr med andre ord 🙂

    • Kontrasterne mellem skib, himmel og landskab er enestående. En stjernehimmel over det snedækkede landskab ville også være flot 🙂
      Et fantastisk sted at fordybe sig som fotograf ❤
      Rigtig god weekend, Hans.

  1. Stunning! For a moment or two the picture of the boat in the snow was wierd until you take a look at the photographs!

    • Glad I made you wonder, Ash 😀 The place is stunning. We went there in September, out of the tourist season. But the place is to cold to visit in the month of May 🙂 …and the boat is still on land. Then it’s much better with The Seastallion from Glendalough ❤

      • You have been to Glendalough? If you come to Denmark in May you can get aboard on the Sea Stallion and study the beautiful details.
        The Viking Ship museum are reconstructing the new Skuldelev 6 you can see some of the photos here.
        Skuldelev is the name of the place where the museum excavated the viking ships in 1962.
        I went to the place where they found the ships and made this post about it.

      • Hanna the link to the new Skuldelev 6 is brilliant/exciting/amazing! Definately a place to visit! For a few months many years ago I was involved with a group of people who were restoring traditional boats from Lough Neagh. I’m only sorry I didn’t keep up with it. However I’m now a volunteer helping to restore the canal close to where I live. At this time we are building some temporary gates so that we can re-water part of the canal this summer.

      • I’m happy that you ‘like’ the link about new Skuldelev 6 🙂 Is the channel designed to prevent flooding? You could make a post about it 😉

  2. Your photos are exquisite. The landscapes so clean and pristine, exactly as I remember them. I love your talented work~

    • Cindy your sweet and inspiring comment started my busy day beautifully, thank you. I know you have been around in Europe and I remember your marvelous pictures from Copenhagen. Norway is always worth a visit and walking in their beautiful mountains gives me a feeling of returning home even though I was born and raised in Denmark.
      Sailing on Bygdin is a great experience because you can sit in silence and watch the beautiful mountains passing by while the weather chance around you. That’s a lovely thrill ❤ 🙂
      All the best,
      Hanna

  3. Så fint å se, for en som elsker den norske fjellheimen. Du er jammen en god Norgesambassadør, Hanna!

    • Du fik mig til at smile, Kjersti 🙂 Tak! Jeg tror aldrig, jeg bliver træt af fjeldene.
      Mine oplevelser i fjeldet har haft stor indflydelse på mit liv iøvrigt, og det er jeg meget taknemmelig for ❤
      Der er en historie mere på trapperne om Norge. Dit land er utroligt smukt.
      Mange gode hilsner,
      Hanna

    • Thank you, rabirius. Jotunheimen is truly a playground for photography 🙂 You must go there but leave Gefion in Denmark 😀

  4. Tusen takk for denne absolutt herlige artikkkelen, Hanna. Vidunderlig vakre bilder!
    Klem til deg fra oss fire,
    Hanne ❤

    • Kære Dina. Det er mig, som siger tak for den dejlige tilbagemelding.
      Norge er svært inspirende og en kilde til evig inspiration ❤ 🙂
      Mange gode hilsner til jer,
      Hanna

  5. Excellent pictures, Hanna. I’m not so sure I’d want to spend much time in the place in the video, not in the snow anyway. Too cold for me. In summer, though, it looks a very beautiful place.
    Cheers, Alen

    • Thank you, Alen. I’ve never been there in the winter and it doesn’t haunts my dreams 🙂 🙂 But I’m fascinated by the snow therefore the video 🙂
      Though in the summer time it’s a very beautiful place as you have guessed. I could imagine that you with your mountains skills would have a party out of wandering in the highest mountains in Norway 🙂 I really think you would enjoy it. Keep in touch with cousin and have a walk with him. You can take a flight to Gardermoen and then you will have 4-5 hours in a rented car to Bygdin.
      All the best,
      Hanna

  6. These are beautiful images Hanna, such a beautiful place.

    • Thank you, Karen. I have been on several boat trips there one better than the other ❤ 🙂
      Have a lovely day,
      Hanna
