Highs & Lows

Surfing in Unstad and seeing the midnight sun.

The weather was the worst in 30 years unfortunately.

Itinerary Overview

A friend and I took the car from Sweden to a town called Svolvaer in Lofoten which took approximately 20 hours. We were both going to work in the healthcare there and at the same time try to explore the many different things you can do in Lofoten. We arrived in the evening, the sun was shining and the temperature pleasant. Unfortunately this wasn't the case the rest of the 6 weeks.
