Summer #gravel adventure part 1

IMG_2197And so we were on our way! In nice weather and on awesome gravel, trying to reach The Old Postal Road between Kautokeino and Alta in Norway about 2000 km up north, and do it almost only on dirt roads 🙂 Our planned route: Summer adventure 201620160703_185713_Richtone(HDR)20160703_190258_Richtone(HDR)We traveled north for a few days. Stayed on nice campsites and of course also did some cooking, like this Spaghetti Carbonara 😉IMG_2206The further up in Sweden you go, the roads become straighter. And fewer.20160704_163958_Richtone(HDR)IMG_2212But the scenery is beautiful! The mountains become higher and the rivers more wild.20160708_111512_Richtone(HDR)After a couple of days on the road and about halfways, we ended up in the middle of several storms. After consideration, we decided to turn back south in anticipation of better weather.

So, we then took a little ride around Stekenjokk for a few days.20160708_113919_Richtone(HDR)20160708_115700_Richtone(HDR)There, we had the most delicious flatbread clamp with smoked trout!20160708_130027_Richtone(HDR)After a few days the weather looked better up north so we turned back and continued our route…IMG_2228

Hopefully we’ll have better luck this time 😉 Last year was a bit disappointing when one of our bikes broke down after only 600 km….(#Nordkapp 2015 – Episode 1)

So, now we give it another try to take the dirt road from Stockholm and (almost) up to the North Cape 🙂

Finally, the bike season 2016 is on!

We’ve enjoyed an incredibly sunny and warm weekend here in Sweden. After a tenacious spring that never wanted to take off, it all came at once. We took our bikes and took off for a few days. A rented cottage by the sea, bbq at sunset and scenic tours in the Swedish forests.
