The Great Journey Across The Finnmarksvidda Plataeu.
____
Every spring, more than 100 000 reindeer migrate across the Finnmarkvidda plateau in #NorthernNorway. From winter, to summer pastures by the coast.
____
They are accompanied by Sami herders, also known as reindeer-herding Sami, who from time immemorial have had these animals and the migration as their livelihood.
____
The reindeer migration has long been inaccessible for most travellers, but in recent years, adventurous explorers have gotten the opportunity to experience this rare glimpse into one of Europe's oldest living cultures first-hand. Including @natgeo who designated the reindeer migration in the north as one the world's top Tours of a Lifetime.

In 1891, a two-story stone tower was built on the summit of Mount Skåla, 1848m above the #Nordfjord. And about a year ago, the Skåla Tower got a modern neighbour called #Skålabu Lodge. Both are self-service cabins where you spend the night, or simply whip up a well-deserved warm cup of coffee after hiking the longest uphill in Norway. The Skåla Tower was originally built as a sanatarium to cure illness, but the place hasn’t lost its remedial qualities, as there can scarcely be anything healthier than waking up to fjord views and a cool glacial breeze.
____
The trip to Mount Skåla is very popular and is suitable for people in good physical shape. Special equipment is not required for hiking to the summit during the summer & autumn. But bring warm clothes and enough food for a fantastic day in the outdoors.

The #Kannesteinen Rock looms above the coast near #Måløy in #Nordfjord, like a sculpture in stone, shaped by nature itself. A beautiful reminder that nature, time and patience are the three great physicians.

The northern lights, the fjords and quiet national parks highlight Norway’s serene qualities. Waterfalls on the other hand are all about raw, sublime power.

The freestanding Mount Eggenipa in #nordfjord rises majestically at the entrance of Våtedalen (the Wet Valley). The 2,5 hour hike up to the summit is actually easier than it looks.
___
Follow the marked trail from the parking lot at Øvredalen all the way to the summit, and enjoy the moment of a perfect fjord landscape view, 1338 meters (4390 feet) above sea level.

Travel tip:
If you want to make a round trip instead of going back the same way, there is a marked track going south from the summit, then turning back down into the valley and back to the starting point in #Øvredalen. This will make the hike a little longer. You should estimate 5-6 hours in total for the round trip.

In 2008, he accidently jumped off the highest cliff ever recorded by a skier. Fred Syversen has since settled down in #Nordfjord - a natural playground surrounded by fjords and mountains. The perfect place for celebrating the anniversary of his jaw-dropping feat, by living 107 moments in a single weekend. One moment per vertical meter he dropped that day ten years ago.

Boring views are for other toilets. This new pit stop along #norwegianscenicroutes #Helgelandskysten gives a new meaning to our #roadtripgoals for 2018. It’s one of many scenic viewpoints along the 18 designated highways in Norway noted for their picturesque scenery and locations.
