New Mountain Hikes Added

I’ve added 3 new mountain hiking guides to the website over the weekend. All 3 were previously available in the eBook: West Lofoten Hikes – But now they are here too. Though there is still some content that will remain exclusive to the ebook, at least for now.

There are a few more hikes in the lineup to be published, but with summer just around the corner, my hiking season is about to begin – and since I can’t really afford to travel anywhere myself at the moment, hopefully it’s a productive one! I have a list of hikes needed for various ebook updates, as well as some other stuff. Now just need to see if the weather will be cooperative and to find some hiking partners

New Articles – May 2019

I’ve added 2 new articles to the website in an attempt to get some information online before the beginning of the summer season. Most of the info is also in the updated edition of Seasons on Lofoten: Summer ebook, and will be added to the others when time allows.

The first article is a short write up about Norway’s newest national park – Lofotodden nasjonalpark. Created in 2018, it will oficially open in June 2019.

The second article is covering drone flying regulations in Norway and Lofoten, as drones are becoming an ever growing item in photography and travel – many people are unaware of the flying regulations for drones here. No one will care or listen to me anyhow, but when the police charge you 20,000 for flying too close to the airport or in a wildlife protection zone, don’t say you didn’t know. A recent article on NRK (in Norwegian) as an example after a video posted on YouTube was reported.

Seasons On Lofoten – Summer – 2nd Edition

I’m happy to announce that the 2nd edition of the Seasons on Lofoten – Summer ebook is now available.

Follow the link here: Seasons on Lofoten – Summer

It has been a long overdue update, with the first edition released in 2015, before I moved to Lofoten. The 2nd edition is now 30 pages longer, 155 pages from the previous 125. Now with 122 images vs. the previous 98 images. Some re-writing of old sections, but mainly new content to reflect the modern reality of Lofoten, which has changed quite a lot in just 4 years.

Those of you who have purchased the first edition will receive a free update to the 2nd edition, even if you bought at the old price, so keep an eye on your inboxes for the new download link.

As always the ebooks are a continuing work in progress. Hopefully it won’t be another 4 years before the next update. But it is also a time consuming task – It’s been around 80 hours of work for this update.

There are are few new ebooks in the works as well. I’ve been out purposely photographing for a possible, and long overdue spring/autumn ebook. And hopefully another hiking ebook during the summer – though I haven’t been able to find any hiking partners. So if interested, shoot me an email, and maybe something will work out…

New 2020 Winter Photography Workshop Dates

Lofoten And Senja Photo Tour 2020

My first winter photo workshops are now online over on my PHOTO TOURS PAGE.

All my winter 2019 tours are now full. There will be several more winter 2020 dates announced soon as well. As with 2019, all 2020 dates will be with me co-guiding with other tour operators. I simply don’t have the time to run my own tours anymore – which is a good thing!

There will be some additional summer and autumn 2019 dates announced soon as well. But the schedule will be lighter than previous years, as there just doesn’t seem to be too much interest in summer here for some reason, so I will mostly keep summer free for me to be out in the mountains…

New 2020 winter dates:

January 21 – 30 – Lofoten and Senja with Muench Workshops

February 3 – 10 – Lofoten with Arctic Exposure Workshops

February 10 – 17 – Lofoten with Arctic Exposure Workshops

Stay tuned for more dates to be announced soon…

Ebook Update – West Lofoten Hikes 2nd Edition

With summer just around the corner, I’ve made a small update to my ebook: West Lofoten Hikes

Main new content is 3 new mountain routes: Andstabben, Tindstind, and Fuglhuken – all located on Moskenesøy. And then a few minor grammer corrections and other things to try and keep the guide as fresh as possible.

Anyone who has purchased the previous version will get an email for a free download of the new edition.

Seasons on Lofoten – Winter – Updated 3rd Edition

Seasons On Lofoten: Winter

I’m happy to announce that the third edition of Seasons on Lofoten: Winter is now available.

Almost 3 years to the day since I launched the first edition, which was also my first ebook, it now is part of 6 guides to northern Scandinavia. This is mostly just a minor refresh of some data, correcting of some spelling, and a few new images in the portfolio.

Those of you who have purchased either of the previous versions will receive and email for a free download of this updated version. Check your spam folders if you don’t see anything! And if you still didn’t get an email, contact me.

New Mountain Hiking Guides

Matmora Hiking Guide Lofoten Islands

Over the last week I’ve added 6 new mountain hikes to the site:

Flakstadøy – Moltind, Flakstadtind

Vestvågøy – Veggen, Kleivheia, Østhimmeltind

Austvågøy – Matmora

It is the dark season here, so I’m getting a lot of writing done at the moment, so there will be more updates to the site over the next week. Some hikes in for the west will be delayed though, as I want to add them to the eBook – West Lofoten Hikes first, before they are available here, while other select mountains will only be found in the eBook.

2018 Lofoten Photo Tour Schedule

2018 Midnight Mountains - Lofoten Photography Tour

It has been a busy finish to the autumn, with the best September weather that I can remember, and a pretty good October as well: Seeming endless days of sun and nights of northern lights – the past five nights in a row as I write this on Wednesday. But now the weather has finally turned a bit and snow is falling on the mountains above my house. So I have finally gotten around to publishing my photo tour schedule for 2018.

Group tours for 2018

Exploring Winter: March 10 – 16

Midnight Mountains: June 30 – July 6

Summer Twilight: August 4 – 10

Exploring Autumn: September 29 – October 5

VISIT MY TOURS PAGE FOR MORE INFO

I’m keeping a light schedule for my group tours this year as I have already been booked on a number of individual private tours and guiding for other companies. If you are interested in a private tour, then contact me soon, as my schedule is about as full as I want it to be, so I wont be taking on many more trips for 2018.

New Ebook – West Lofoten Mountain Hikes

West Lofoten Hikes Ebook

I’m a bit late in making the announcement here and those of you who are on my email list ( who also received a discount) or follow me on Facebook already know the news: That I have released my 6th ebook! West Lofoten – A Mountain Photography Guide to 24 Hikes on Moskenesøy and Flakstadøy.

MORE INFO HERE

Like the title says, this guide focuses on the mountains of west Lofoten – my home for the last year now and where I have spent a majority of my time.

Available for $14. The book is 239 pages long with 150 image, and somewhere around 28,000 words. This is my biggest work yet and took up a lot of my time over the last months – not counting all the hiking that needed to be done over the past summer! But I think the effort was worth it and I’m quite happy with the result.

It was a fairly mild autumn on Lofoten last year, and I managed to get in some long coveted peaks during this time. Fingers crossed for the same conditions this year. But first, winter!
