Spring in Trøndelag

Almost middle of April and it is snowing. Norwegians seem happy to have white Easter holiday, for us, it is good time to hit the road for some longer holiday with some sun...meanwhile, a few pics from these days...
11.4., morning view from our kitchen
150 km south from Trondheim, there is some spring feeling in the air, and some fish in the water
fishing from a bridge...a chance to reach deep water without needing a boat....however, getting a big fish means some serious exercise to deliver it to the shore
but it is worthy.. each member of our team got the BIG one

Oppdal

Great weekend in Oppdal...
together with Albert, we got many trouts in Laugen...dinner for weekend is ready
Saturday - 27 km loop in Skarvatnet area

Sunday - 18 km loop in Storlia , almost in Trollheimen

Skaun

Memories of Emilie, every time I turn in Børsa into Skaun. Just 30 minutes from home, so many nice lakes and countryside...one can do some ice fishing and cross-country skiing in a single day, without almost meeting anybody...except an old man, who told me that he got 180 trouts in a day there several years ago!
ski-route from Ramsjøen
along Rossvatnet, leads you to some nice views over Trondheim fjord
with some artificial aurora
ice - fishing on windy Laugen lake
finally got me a nice trout

Ice fishing game

Spending 6 hours alone on the ice, drilling holes and letting maggots dive into the darkness, not getting a single fish and next day again, of course without success. I like that game... check the best ice fishing movie with Daniel Defoe here and a few pics from last days...
Stuggusjøen (location here). Tough first experience
Laugen (location here). Excellent sunny day with Ray
going home to cook a whale
Våddån (location here). I got a tip from the locals, but still no fish
back to the city

Sylan

Long weekend in Sylan, just 130 km from snowless Trondheim, another world...

morning view from the cabin. Patrusli farm offers great accommodation next to Stuggusjøen lake
nice cross country ski loop above the lake, with views at Sylan mountain
and freezing afternoon on the lake, trying to catch some char
next day, lets go to the mountains
on the way
great conditions up there

and another unsuccessfull try, artificial worms are not working
on the way back to Trondheim, we stopped in Tydal, another great skiing destination
