But back to this skiing adventure!
Heading off towards Hardangervidda, we had about -15 degrees C and sunshine, a perfect winter day. This was apparently also a perfect day for skiing with kites. The colourful kites were dancing in the pretty blue sky when we left Finse! For me, everything around this area is just breathing outdoor life.
January in Scandinavia is quite dark I must admit, but we managed to pitch our tents before the darkness was a fact. Later that night the temperature dropped down to -30 degrees C. It’s interesting how all materials change when they get cold, both the feeling and the sound of them. It is also in these kind of conditions you can really evaluate if you choose the right equipment.
Continuing the following morning, the temperature was still cold and the snow on the ground was super light and airy. For me that was a bit troubling since we were going quite steep up hills. I had short skins under my skis which clearly was not enough with the heavy sledge behind. But after ups comes downs, right!
