Rainy Sunnmøre Alps

Tussenauset hut

The last few days in the Sunnmøre Alps have been a whole lot of rain and not much else. The first two days and nights I spent completely tentbound in the rain, camping near a roadside lake. With a forecast of just more rain, I figured I might as well wait in style so I hiked up to the Tussenauset backcountry cabin, situated near a big alpine lake surrounded by large peaks. I stayed there for two nights, the first I had the cabin all to myself, then a group of friendly locals came up and we had a good time the second night – they kindly shared their beer and homemade liquor with me as we hung out. There was luckily a nice break in the weather during sunset, but that was about it.

Now I’m at Geiranger, one of Norway’s most famous fjords. It is still raining and the forecast is pretty much nothing but rain for the whole next week, a big bummer since it’s my last week here. I was planning on going to Jotunheimen national park, where Norway’s tallest mountains are, and I probably still will, but it could very well be basically a waste of a week. Oh well!
