The hike we took was researched by my dad, who came to Lofoten prepared with maps and knowledge of the local area. The owner/operator/fisherman/chatter/host of the seaside hostel we stayed at pointed to the trailhead. The hike involved a walk around a lake, a huff up a ski hill then a left turn and a hike over many peaks in a beautiful range. The 360 views were amazing and the light breeze welcomed.

The sheep took off and showed us the path to the next peak.

    No doubt you guys are in shape, but did you find you used very different muscles when hiking (over biking)? Looks like a super walk…. Better than my imminent walk to the post office.

  2. when not biking- why not go hiking? haha…you guys are the best! Looking fit and happy and wonderful. We are so proud of you guys for following your hearts and your dreams.
    much love ( as always) k+j
