A dream became true (partially). I was able to make a trip through Sweden, little Norway and Finland on my own within alsmost two weeks. Was driving 8746.3km within this time. You can imagine, how much impressions I have picked up. Now, almust three years later, I’m completeing my photo works. Thise page should give you a rough impressions what I’ve seen and – give an impression about the spectaculare nature of scandinavia. Unfortunately (!) I’ve lost my trip diary, so I only can roughly recapitulate the details and locations.
It’s a trip of more than 900km, I did in one turn, starting very early in Munich, having a hot tea on the motorway somewhere to enjoy the sunset at the cost of the east sea.
Since some years it is possible to cross the Oresund – the sea between Denmark and Sweden via a huge Tunnel and Bridge construction. Other exciting bridges are on the way. My visit in Sweden started with a sightseen in the city of Malmö.
Even iof don’t like abandoned things – have a look here: The nature is taking back slowley a lot of cars from the 1950’s.
With my rubber kayak I’ve made a tour through the great wilderness of the southern lakes. Have a look to the photes of a great nature in a perfect light
A hill with incredible old oaks with a special mood. Even the Wikings have celebrated already their holy tratitions there.
This beatiful city (even when it doesn’t look alike on the photo below) is a very good example how a lost industrial era can be turned into a high quality of life. The city didn’t demonlish the old industrial building where mainly textiles have been produced. Instead they have turned the buildings into a mix of technology campus, university, bars and lofts. All bildings are standing in a water landscape as the previos industry was dependent on it. –> Worth to visit!
This day, I’ve made a gain a lot of kilometers, pasing by Stockholm and heading up to the middle of Sweden.
Hiking tours through swomps, waterfalls and wild forests – enjoying the wide sky.
The Rogen is a spectacular area between Sweden and Norway with steep mountains touching the clouds and wild lakes and forests.
Another long ride to get cloder to the north. Wide landscapes, gravel roads, dears, waterfalls….and lakes for your own.
Spectacular nature & light !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’ve crossed the mountains to go down to Mo-i-Rana to the fjord Ranfjorden. Mo-i-Rana is of the cities, I have visited already during my Interrail tour 1986 (!!!) – Have a look to my transparencies scans!. It was a very rainy day, but exciding to cross the continent in one day to tast the water of the North Sea.
A tour to the starting point Kvikkjokk. From there is a short access to the Kungsleden path up on the plateau. Arriving there an spectacular view over the wide landscape to the eat can be enjoyed.
DAY 12- 14: following soon
