Ørnes and Glomfjord -Day 3 - 4

After crossing the Vestfjord we arrived in Ørnes at 7:00, directly for breakfast. This morning we made time to relax as we were leaving the hotel 10:00.

Todays objective were set to mountain X, a beautiful ski touring peak overlooking the coast of Helgeland outside of the clacier Svartisen. Our guides set out in a slow pace as the group were starting to get a bit tired. Surprisingly we reached the top without any strive with ease. I guess the learning was don't rush but be effective!

Martin and Pekka - Nice views heading up!

Perfect line.

Getting ready for the final day, and what a day!!

Today the forcast was the worst, but the weather the best! Learning don't plan your trip solely by the forcast.

As we had a flight to reach we set out a bit earlier, but still we made a full day trip in Glomfjord. Today the obejective was the a summit sticking out from Svartisen glacier.  The peak is 1238 a.s. and the glacier starts from around 800 a.s.

We had set the time limit to 13:00 by the car, meaning a somewhat higher speed without any problem for the group. We reached the summit at 11:45 after 3 hour climb. A great job by all.

Enjoy the pictures below and look forward to video soon...
