We had fantastic weather in Tromsø today, blue skies and virtually no wind, and since the weather forecast for the next 10 days is terrible (+4˚C and rain) I just had to go out and enjoy the sun while it was here. Nobody else was able to join me, so I decided to do a relaxed snowshoe walk up Nordtinden, on the northwestern side of Kvaløya, which has beautiful views towards the outer islands. I took the snowshoes because I expected icy and windblown snow, but the snow conditions above ca 200 m were better than I expected.

Looking eastwards, back on my track. Lyngen alps in the far distance.

'Selfie' of me and the top cairn on Nordtinden, with Ringvassøya in the background.
