The Basque Country from above

On our trip to the spanish Basque Country, from which we returned just a couple of hours ago, we got the chance to climb some lesser known peaks. The Basque Country has an absolutely stunning geography- there's steep cliffs by the sea, rolling hills all over the place, with the occasional pointy mountain, randomly thrown... Continue Reading →

Tresticklan Nationalpark by ski (plus a moose sighting)

There's places where every swede seems to go to, for cross-country skiing or to spend their weekend in a cabin: Åre, Idre, Jämtlandsfjällen.

It was definitely too windy to try to go higher up on the mountains, above the treeline. In the mountain station there is a cool weather station... Continue Reading →
