The official north cape - of course more photogenic than the 'real' northernmost point of Europe. We visited both but found the 8km hike to real one (Knivskjellodden) more impressive.
Altough both of the points are on an island (can be reached since 1999 via tunnel) there is another real real northernmost point of european mainland - Kinnarodden.
To complete the story: the northernmost point of Europe including all islands is Kap Fligely (if considered as European territory) or Rossøya (north end of Spitzbergen) as the alternative...
So you see, it's not so easy to define THE north cape cape of Europe.

Not our first encounter with a moose here in Norway, but the first where they gave us the opportunity to get the camera ready...
As we are still not sure what the difference between moose and elk is - maybe someone can comment this here.

There is quite a difference in terms of temperature between late summer days in Norway and central Europe. But luckily there is also quite a difference of beeing away from the crowds here.

Actually, November is not as bad as most people are saying. It’s all about timing - being at the right place at the right time.  Of course, not all days are like this, but who never tries, will never have a chance for such a jackpot experience.

Enjoying the very nice atmosphere of old town Danzig. There was a mix of street music, people, bars and street life while we were sitting in the windows of our Airbnb flat with a cold beer and one of the best views we’ve ever had. Perfect scenery.  #2bfree  #streetlife #danzig #gdansk #poland #city #architecture #oldhouses #timberframing

Der kalifornische Kondor galt vor etwa 30 Jahren als so gut wie ausgestorben. Weltweit war der Bestand aufgrund Bejagung und passiver Vergiftung durch Pestizide auf gerade mal etwas mehr als 20 Vögel zusammengeschrumpft. Der drohende Verlust betraf nicht weniger als eine Art, die schon vor über 30.000 Jahren ihre orangerot gefärbten, nackten Köpfe in eiszeitliche Mammutkadaver versenkte.
Während jener letzten Eiszeit erstreckte sich das Verbreitungsgebiet der Riesenvögel (immerhin beträgt ihre Spannweite bis zu drei Meter und macht sie damit nach ihren engen Verwandten, den Andenkondoren zum zweitgrößten flugfähigen Vogel der Erde) noch auf große Teile des amerikanischen Kontinents – hin von der pazifischen Westküste bis hinüber nach Florida und hinauf bis zum heutigen Staat New York.
Das wir –im Jahr 2016– auf der Baja California, mit einem solchen Moment belohnt werden könnten, hatten wir uns im Traum nicht ausgemalt, als wir beschlossen die 100 einsamen Kilometer landeinwärts in den Parque Nacional San Pedro Mártir zu fahren. Steil zog sich die Straße in immer enger werdenden Abschnitten hinauf bis auf 2800 Meter über dem Meer. Je höher sich der Ducato dabei unter spürbarem Protest schraubte, ja grandioser und erhabener wurde die Landschaft.
Nach 70-jähriger Abwesenheit wurden hier 2003 die ersten 6 Kondore wieder in die Freiheit entlassen. Das erste Küken schlüpfte im April 2007. Insgesamt leben in der Sierra de San Pedro Mártir nun um die 20 Pärchen und weltweit hat sich die Population bis zum heutigen Tag auf etwas mehr als 200 freilebende Tiere erholt. Daneben leben zusätzlich etwa gleich viele in Gefangenschaft.
Der Moment, diese Tiere in freier Wildbahn zu erleben, zu beobachten und von ihnen umringt auf Tuchfühlung gehen zu dürfen war sicher einer der spektakulärsten unserer gesamten Reise. Vielen Danke liebe Mutter Natur für dieses einmalige Geschenk! #californiacondor #bird #BajaCalifornia #Mexiko #2bfree #NationalPark #sierradesanpedromartir #Vogel #Wildlife #KalifornischerKondor #Kondor #Mexico #nature #mountains #neverstopexploring #adventure

Very nice hiking here in Tiveden National Park. Combined almost all hikes to fill the day and finally got lazy legs.
Highly recommendable, but start about 6 in the morning to get the best views and escape the growd.

Top of Scandinavia, top of Norway.
Of course, many of my climbing or alpine friends do know most of the highest peaks of the central Europe countries, but pretty sure almost nobody  knows the name of the highest peak of Norway and Scandinavia...
Galdhøppigen!

And as there are too many comfortable hikes from different huts to the 2469m summit available, we were looking for a real challenge to value the mountain in a special way.
We gave it a try by a little 'fair means' and skipped the huts at all. We started at 4:15am at the entrance of valley and cycled 18km and 700m elevation and took all the necessary gear (which isn't a lot to be honest) with us. We reached Spliterstulen hut at 6:00 and locked the bikes there. We hiked up via the Svellnose summit and Keilhaus Topp summit to the top.
We did well and reached Galdhøppigen after another 3,5 hours. Actually not all too bad for the ~1400m elevation gain, but more important was the fact, that the crowds were far behind us. So we had our peace to enjoy the beauty of this mountain just ourselves (okay, with two others but this is absolutely not much).
And when it started to become busy after a while we just moved to the southwest summit which is about 30m lower. Nobody will disturb there for hours as everyone is focused to the summit itself. Even if that means to share with hundreds of people. Strange...
At the end of the day we climbed 4 summits and made a 50km roundtrip with  over 2000 meter elevation gain.
Chapeau!!!

Are you able to spot @juuuliiiiiiiia in here blue Kajak?
What a trip paddling through the archipelago north of Stockholm towards Ängsö National Park.
We were staying overnight on this beautiful island continuing to Ängsö early next morning and returned late in the evening. Both, the first and last hours of the day are probably the very best to kajak and explore the beauty of Swedens eastern coastline.

A morning coffee is for sure one of the best things on a camping trip in general. But if you are able to sip it high above Preikestolen (Norway) while the first rays of the morning sun warming the scenery and your face - that's kind of unique.

For sure, everybody knows the Grand Canyon - but who knows the 'Bleik Canyon' which is by the way twice as deep? 
I bet without using Wikipedia or Google there might be a rare number of people knowing this place and for what it's famous for. 
The underwater canyon starts about 15 km offshore from Andenes/Norway and is a nature habitat for many underwater species, such as sperm whales, humpback whales, fin whales and killer whales (orcas).

We were lucky and could see both, sperm whales and orcas during a 5 hour ocean trip with the very friendly and competent team of @whalesafariandenes Thank you for the great opportunity!
