Norway 01 Lista


01 | Lista


A couple of moons ago I’ve packed up the van with a few surfboards and all necessities of life and hit the road northbound to explore the fjords, mountains and frigid coast of Norway.

After we hit the ferry from Denmark to Kristiansand, the first stop was the little village of Lista with its iconic lighthouse. The change in landscape from Denmark to Norway is striking. The sanddunes get replaced by vast stretches of gras sprinkled with rocks and in the distance you can see the mountains of the fjord lands.

Also the weather is harsher. A constant cold breeze is blowing from the sea and it is more likely to see a sheep than a human being.
