Lapland wintercruise 2015

During 9 days I drove with my VW-camper 4100 km (2560 miles) up through Sweden and Norway to photograph snowy landscapes, ice and northern lights. Along the way I experienced winds up to gale force, temperatures down to 26 degrees below zero, but mostly the weather was on my side.
Main attractions to visit were Tännforsen in Jämtland, Reine in Lofoten, the road between Narvik and Kiruna and Storforsen near Älvsbyn.
