SPITSBERGEN SUMMER 2008:
The Adventdalenriver from glacier to Fjord expedition has been very successful. A short story with some pictures can be seen if you click on the expedition logo: Advent River from Glacier to Fjord.(see above)

In August I managed to do two week trips on Spitsbergen:
The first trip was a walking trip from the Nordenskiold Glacier to Tempelfjorden. On the last day on this trip I did a long day (and night) trip around and over the mountains in the Templetmountain area.
Click on the Templet Mountain picture (see above) for an exiting story with pictures.

The second trip was a ski-tour in Oscar 2 land. From 200m. above sea level I did use my ski's. This was probable the last ski-tour for the ski-season 2008 or the first ski-tour for the ski-season 2009.
Click on Ski-Tour Oscar 2 Land (see above) for some special pictures.

LOFOTEN SUMMER 2008: During the last weeks of August I made a 14 days sea-kayak and walking (scrambling) trip on the Lofoten islands in Northern Norway.
I was very lucky to see a beautiful sunset when I was camping on a high mountaintop at Reinefjorden.
I managed to paddle around the southern part of the Lofoten Islands. For sure this is the place to test the stability of your sea-kayak and the stability of yourself.
A daily report with may amazing pictures can be seen if you click on the Lofoten pictures. (see above)

23 DECEMBER 2008: On this day the following big expedition was "born". On January 1th 2010 the expedition 'Living on Frozen Water' will start on Spitsbergen. This expedition will end at December 31th 2010.
One year in the Spitsbergen Mountains!!

Many exciting special things will take place during this expedition. This expedition has his own website now. I will use 3 drawings/expedition flags on this expedition. Iím using these drawings also to promote the trip, showing the three main seasons on Spitsbergen: Darkness, Winter and Summer. This expedition has a mission!! More information can be found at the website.

Trips & Expeditions for 2009:
In 2008 some new idea's came up for some expeditions to do in 2009. But since December 2008, when the one years trip " Living On Frozen Water"for 2010, became more reality, things and idea's did changed a lot. In 2009 many things must be arranged for the 2010 trip. But most of my idea's for trips, planned for 2009, will find a place in the 2010 trip.

In March 2009 I have been out in Rondane (South Norway), making an enormous big igloo and doing some special snowriverboarding. A small video of this can be seen at:    www.Fjelltours.nl/2010.html

In March 2009 I have been also in North Norway, doing some Sea kayaking and Skiing there. Click on the logo: Lofoten-Sea Kayak & Ski Expedition for more information and some pictures. (see above)
