Ersfjorden

    Newer Older

    This picture is taken at the peak "Skamtinden" on Kvaløya outside Tromsø.
    You see the peak "Storstolpan" to the left, and to it´s right you see "Hollendaren"
    The fjord is as the title of the picture says, Ersfjorden.
    This may be the most spectalular place to go hiking if you live in, or visit Tromsø.

    You start at approximately 25 meters (82 feet) and work your way up to 884 meters (2900 feet)
    It is a relatively tough hike as the distance to height is about 2,5 meaning that for every 2,5 meters you walk, 1 of those is vertical.
    Photographically speaking the conditions could have been alot better. We arrived at the top at about 10.30 AM when the sun was at a wrong angle. Additionally the air wasn´t as clear as I would have liked.
    I will definately be coming back to this peak at a later time.

    But all in all it was (and still is) a very nice way to spend 5-6 hours in the morning.
