Itinerary description

Calm easterly winds, fresh but pleasant morning temperatures - so I set the course towards Tingholmen. It is at the eastern edge of the island chain. On the way the rocks change from the Phyllite on the western islands to Gneiss in the East. The mountains move closer and you get the typical Fjord Norway impressions. Take a look at the pictures taken on the way.

Even closer - Fjord Norway feeling. The different shades of the mountains always fascinate me.
