New summer directions

New summer destinations

Saturday trip for new summer destinations

Is April and still a lot of snow in the mountain. It was long, long winter here in Norway. And because the summertime is coming I wanted to check some new places. For this summer I have a two main directions, first is Jostedalsbreen Nasjonalpark and the second is Folgefonna Nasjonalpark. Both it is a glaciers. Before any trips, I always check the places on the maps and if it is possible in terrain. Folgefonna is not so far from Bergen, and I decide to check some places around it. It was long and nice Saturday trip for new summer destinations.

Only 400 kilometers, but 14 hours driving and walking. It is sad, I never tried this way around Folgefonna national park. I found almost everything I wanted. Only one road was closed by the falling stones. It was even dangerous to try to drive it now. I have to wait and check it again next time.

After all, I am so sure I will get a lot of amazing pictures for you and a lot of useful information about places around Folgefonna.  I am so sure is worth to be explored. Like I wrote above it was just small trip for new summer destinations, but I want to show you some place witch looks beauty in winter scenery and I can only imagine how it will look in summer. With all the mountain colors around.

This is an unnamed mountain road, aside from the road number 40, the lake is Fjellhaugvatn and it is one of the biggest in this area. Enjoy the view. I am sure is perfect place for summer camp.

One day trip to Odda

Another one, one day trip to Odda.

Crazy summer. The second wettest summer in Norway. The rain starts in June, and during the summer was rainy almost everyday. Wet. So, sometimes the weather give us some break. And it was in this weekend. Almost whole day without rain. Nice day for the trip. One day trip to Odda. Odda valley, most know like the waterfall valley, was so crazy this time. The power of all the waterfalls gives the thrill. I like this small town. I like to watch all the people from whole world who came here and waiting for transport to the start point, to climb on Troltunga. Many different people and many different clothes. Easy to see the experienced travelers and completely amateurs without any equipment or even without enough good shoes. Crazy people.

This was lazy trip with many stops. The picture below was taken from one of the place I ever stop. Exactly on other side of this mountain is the city Odda. I love this view. And here is always quiet. Nice to eat some breakfast with the view like this. It taste better. I hope you will also like this nice view. I have pictures from here taken on every kind of weather, in every season. And the majesty mountain is always beautiful.

Some pictures from the waterfalls I will present later. Not everything is ready yet.

I wish myself the autumn season to be much better than the summer. A lot of place to visit. I have a lot of plans. The end of this week from Thursday I will spend partialy in Jotunheim National Park. Forecast is good, so I hope to bring back a lot of nice pictures for you.

Middle of May somewhere in Hardanger

Middle of May somewhere in Hardanger

I love Hardanger, I love Norway. Just before the 17th of May, Norwegian National Day, I want to present another shot from my last trip to Hardanger.

I love this place even because there is still not much tourists. Cruise ships passing Hardanger fjord in the way to Eidfjord. There is many beautiful and hidden places around, but it requite time to rich it. Few days ago someone ask on Facebook about trip to Trolltunga. On the beginning of May!!! So, in this time this trip is only for professionals with good mountain equipment. Unfortunately some people still trying and gives a lot of work for rescuers. Sometimes it requite to use helicopter to take dawn some crazy people. Even now in the Middle of May somewhere in Hardanger is still lot of snow on the top, and it looks amazing. For photographers and for all who understand mountains.

Enjoy the view and celebrate with Norway the 17th of May – Norwegian National Day

One summer day in Hardanger

It was a beautiful one summer day in Hardanger

I love Hardanger, I love the road to Hardanger from Bergen. Many times in summer I visit this beauty p[art of Norway. Also in autumn time is worth to visit it. This is the apple region. Always along the road are the places where is possible to bay apples, or other fruits, or the apple juice. Nice to try fresh fruits here with the view on Hardangerfjord and clean, fresh air. On the road between Bergen and Norheimsund, is many places obligatory to stop and enjoy. Even if I was there many times. The two most important is the two waterfalls. The first – Fossenbratte and the second one – Steinsdalsfossen. Both are beautiful. About two years ago close the second one was built the new parking and modern building for Tourist information. I photograph this building many times but never had time to present it. So, on todays photo from one summer day in Hardanger I present the picture of the second waterfall Steinsdalsfoseen taken through the panoramic window on it. This scene I photograph also many times, but this one I think is the good enough to present for You. I hope You will like it.

Because is Friday evening I wish you all to have nice time all around the world.

Between autumn and winter

Between autumn and winter in Hardanger.

I love Hardanger and Hardangerfjord. Many amazing places along it. Few of them I alredy show you here on my blog, many other still waiting for my visit. Because Hardanger is the Norwegian fruit center, in autumn season along the roads is many places with stands to bay fruits, straight from the orchard. Fantastic apples and pears. It is one of many reason why I always, every year drive through Hardanger. The picture below was taken on one of that place. I thought it is nice composition. The bus stop with the trees already colored by autumn and the Folgefonna glacier on the mountains on other side Hardangerfjord. So any question, why I like it? Between autumn and winter.

Kinsarvik valley

I am not sure the name, Kinsa valley or Kinsarvik valley. Who knows, who help me?

Like I wrote it few days ago, I have to write something about Kinsarvik. Small little town, beautiful place for tourists. Big camping in the city, lot of hotels, hostels and private rooms for rent. Quiet, good place. The most beautiful waiting few kilometers far. Everyone can reach the old power plant and the first waterfall. Is the easy part of walk. Some other can reach the second waterfall, but only the most perserve could reach all four waterfalls during the river Kinso. From the second one starts the path through the forest, and is not easy. I reach the third one, only. So starting from the first it is Tveitafossen with the building of an old power plant. The second one waterfall it is Nyastolfossen. The third, big one it is Nykkjesøyfossen, and higher and far is the last one, Søtefossen. Magical hike between the all waterfalls is worth to recommend. I was so surprised. Of course the water flows downward from the Hardangervidda National Park and is crystal clean and so cold. Nice tip for the weekend trip if you are in Hordaland. This is the Kinsarvik valley, (or Kinsa Valley).

I hope this short description can encourage someone to visit this place. I hope and I wish you all to have a good time.

The first picture show the first waterfall Tveitafossen

The second picture shows probably the last two waterfalls. It looks like one big, but is only illusion

It is important for me, please write some comments below with the destinations you want to see.

Mountain farm

Mountain farm – Kjeåsen

When I visit some places I like to know what is around. Sometimes I use Google or Google Maps, sometimes I drive through the road around this place. I can get Eidfjord only driving road 7, from Bergen or from Oslo. In Eidfjord is only one small road to the Sima Power Plant. When I passed it, I found the small road up. The road sign say, I can drive up only every one hour starting from 8 am. Driving down only half past every hour. So, it was interesting. The first kilometer is the mountain serpentine like everywhere in mountain. The rest of this road runs through the tunnel like from dark horror. Tunnel looks like hollow by the hummers. Is narrow and low and with low lights. Horrible. This was the reason why I can drive up exactly in time, because  the cars can not pass in tunnel.

After tunnel is small parking and some path. The path runs through the private property to the small view point on 530 meters over the small Simadalsfjord. Beautiful view on the small mountain farm Kjeåsen, and the fjord and even on the Eidfjord harbor. In the same time in harbor was berthed cruise ship Aida Sol. From here looks like a small toy. Enjoy the view and have a nice evening.
