Sandvika, on the island Hillesøya outside Tromsø, looks like a beach in Greece, but this is far North of the Polar Circle! The water temperature can't beat the Mediterranean though...
Hollendaren and Store Blåmann, on the island Kvaløya, outside Tromsø. The latter is a popular but rather steep and challenging hiking destination.
Ersfjorden, a fjord outside Tromsø
The sun shines on the mountains called Storstolpan and Finnkjerka, just before it disappears below the horizon. The peaks are among the many rugged mountains on Kvaløya, outside Tromsø.
Skamtinden, on Kvaløya outside Tromsø. Only 884 meters high, but provides an incredibly spectacular and a bit challenging hike to the peak. And a fantastic view in this kind of weather, looking straight down into the sea directly below.
Descent from Skamtinden, with Rekvik, the starting point for the trip, still far below
Ersfjorden and Ersfjordsbotn, seen from a ridge just below Skamtinden. In the far background, one can see the city of Tromsø.
