I have nothing but love for this place. Helped me out when a hostel I had planned on staying in was no longer in business. The front desk staff have been very helpful in answering questions and giving me information about the area and how to get around. Heated bathroom floors, wonderful views, and a great location (close to coffee shops, restaurants, a nice walk along the harbor, etc.)
P.S awesome internet and the continental breakfast is wonderful.

Our day started pretty early as we try to acclimatise to the time change and recover from our jet lag. We were up by 4am already ahead of a 6:30 start out on the road. We drove north from Solvaer with Lofoten still covered in a cloak of darkness. Sunrise was not due until around 8:30ish. Despite the darkness, you ...

That is, scramble to any seat you can that you deem relatively safe, and hope for the best. This is the same plane that yesterday took the advance team, on the back of what has been officially called a hurricane, on a wild journey to a different airport and then a 2.5 hour crazy bus ride ...
... I managed to get it and went to climb over the side the captain grabbed the back of my dry suit and told me I was too late- everyone else claimed back on board high fiving each other buzzing that the orcas had swam just meters below them- I was delighted tai was one of the people who got to see it, next time id make sure I was ready. The next hour or so was the best part of the day we were surround constantly by at least 3 families of orcas each with around 7-8 orcas including month ...
Other worldly. Beautiful. We drove here - have largely given up on public transport. See link: http://mobil.fremover.no/lokale_nyheter /article7467566.ece. We drove from Narvik and bikes, climbed (a little) and are about to head a little further out. The weather has now turned back to where it is supposed to be. Closer to 50s and 60s, I think ...
