I am finally back in my beloved Norway, beyond the Arctic Circle!
I was supposed to leave in March 2020, but we were in full lockdown!
We rescheduled to leave in November 2020, but we were considered “red country” so we couldn’t enter Norway!
I plan for parts again in March 2021, but as Italians we still had our doors closed!
I start to lose hope of entering Norway, when finally on September 25th 2021 they removed all the restrictions, I was leaving for Iceland but I decided to plan this trip for the end of February/beginning of March!
The idea was the same as always, to arrive in Tromsø and stay there for a few days, then go down to Senja to visit it at its best, go further down to Lofoten and stay there for several days before returning up to Tromsø and taking the flight of return!
So it was done, departure 27/02/2022 and return 10/03/2022, a beautiful journey with many stages and many expectations!
Everything went well, the only flaw was the weather, a weather that is becoming more and more extreme and bizarre meant that I found on very little snow, lots of rain, temperatures around 4°C/5°C at night and many many clouds: the Icelandic cyclone was very strong and very elongated towards the Azores Islands, the high pressure of the Azores moved to central and northern Europe until it reached Oslo and most of Sweden, another Siberian cyclone air instead stationed on the Mediterranean Sea, a typical Omega Blocking very damaged for the polar climate and I was right in the transition belt between the high pressure of the Azores that pumped warm-humid air and the polar cyclone that pressed with its cold and dry winds: the result was always overcast sky almost every evening, abundant rainfall and very little Northern Lights visible, so meteorologically speaking it was an unfortunate journey…for the rest I felt emotions that only Norway can give me, emotions that I want to try to convey to you in this timelapse!
Enjoy it and see you soon with a new job!
