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).

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.

Voss-Vik-Sogn: 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: Hut with grass roof near river Norwegian river 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.
