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


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.


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!

New Image Gallery – Summer 2016

With only a couple days left in the year, I have finally gotten around to uploading a gallery from this summer.


It was a busy year, and there were almost too many images to choose from. But also, there were some days where everything worked out perfectly, and I would like to show every angle, focal length, view point, from a single location and moment that produced dozens of images. But of course, that doesn’t make very much sense! And so I have to edit a bit, unfortunately. However, you can always head to my photo archive and see everything (that I have gotten around to processing).

New Lofoten Hiking Guide – Volandstind

Volandstind mountain hiking guide - Lofoten Islands

After a long pause in adding new content, mainly because I’ve been busy writing my next ebook for Lofoten – a hiking/mountain photography guide to Moskenesøy and Flakstadøy, I have added a new mountain hike to the site: VOLANDSTIND

Volandstind is located just down the road from my house, and sort of my backyards mountain. It is a good easy walk and I usually go up for the exercise most times and leave my camera behind. And the views, like most anything on Lofoten, are fantastic.

My ebook should be coming to a close in the next few weeks, which should then allow me a bit more time to add new hiking guides to the site. Though some mountains will only be available in the ebook, at least for a while, as I want to give exclusive content to people who help support me and my efforts here…

Beaches Of Lofoten Second Edition

Along with this update, all my ebooks have received a price increase to $14.

New 2017 Summer And Autumn Lofoten Photo Workshops

2017 Lofoten Islands Photo Tour - Midnight Mountains

Along with the already Scheduled workshops, I have just published 3 new Lofoten photo tours for summer and autumn 2017.

Midnight Mountains – June 24 – 30, 2017

Summer Twilight – August 12 – 18, 2017

Exploring Autumn – September 23 – 29, 2017

Overall, I will be keeping a slightly lighter tour schedule in 2017 than I did in 2016.  I had more private tour bookings than I was expecting, which at times left me away from home for weeks on end. I am also simultaneously working on several new ebooks for both Lofoten and other areas in Norway and Sweden, all of which all take a lot of field, photography, and research time. I have already fallen a bit behind my deadlines for 2016 and had to cancel a few photo/hiking trips all together – which in the short seasons of the Scandinavian arctic, basically delays things by a year. Being busy is a good problem to have, but the key is finding balance…

New Photo Gallery – Winter 2016

Just in time for midsummer, I have added my winter 2016 image gallery to the site.

For stock image licensing, you can view the full winter 2016 photo gallery in my Photoshelter Archive – 100 images from February and March, 2016.

I occasionally get requests for prints, unfortunately though, I am not offering prints at the moment for any of my images.
