My thoughts when packing for this trip was that the Gulf Stream is passing by Norway and therefore it can NOT get that cold. So I packed my hiking boots and felt well equipped for this one-week trip. At the arrival at the Lofoten it was already cold and started to snow the next day, and the next.
What happened to the "warm" Gulf Stream? ;-) Despite mostly wet and ice-cold feet, I spent super lekkere and mooie days on the Lofoten Islands with a great dutch photo group.
