Norway 17. April - 12. July 2008
The city of Bod� is located in the Northern part of Norway, and is
quite a nice place to visit in the summer months June - August (and
in the winter also, if you like snow).

Lofoten (island north of Bod�):
Lofoten is one of the nicest parts of Norway with the tall mountains,
old traditional costal buildings and white sand beaches, this is truly
an amazing place to visit. You can get out to Lofoten from Bod� by
ferry, and the trip takes around 3,5 hours one way.
The beaches are located about a 30 minute drive from Moskenes, which
is where the ferry from Bod� will drop you off. In Flakstad you will
find beaches that has the beautiful white sand.
Oslo (the capital city of Norway):

Fantoft (outside of Bergen):
Pictures above: The Fantoft stav church was originally built around 1151, moved in 1883
from Fortun in Sogn to Fantoft, almost burned down to the ground in 1992 and rebuilt and
completed in 1997.
I drove from Bergen to Sogn and followed the main road over the Vik mountain (Vika
fjellet), the pictures below are some of the pictures I got along the way:
Voss is known for extreme sport, and this is some of the things you
can do in Voss: Kiting, paragliding, hang gliding, skydiving, rafting
and kayaking. The river above is a typical example of a river you
would be rafting in.
Picture above: Vika fjellet (Vik mountain). That mountain is pretty
much covered in snow year round.
Picture above: The Sogne fjords. This picture was taken 11. May.
In June, July and August, the snow that you see on the mountain
tops above would be (mostly) gone.
