Lanzarote – touristic but worth a visit

This winter I have been on a short trip to Lanzarote which is part of the Canary islands. Although you will certainly be not alone there it is still worth a visit. There are interesting hiking routes as well as beautiful locations for landscape photographers.

Off the beaten track – hiking in Sarek

Sarek national park is located in the Swedish part of Lapland to the north of the Arctic Circle. Although (or should I say because?)

With this article I want to give you some background information on my hike, my motivation and practical aspects.

Return to Sarek

leave a comment

In late summer I returned to Sarek – the largest high mountain area in northern Sweden. It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve been to. As the last time, I hiked two weeks covering approximately 200 km (see also last year’s post or gallery). Although hiking in the same area, the overlap with last year’s hike was less than 10 km. In the following some preview images, more information and of course pictures will follow.

New Images from Scotland

Last month I have been re-visiting Scotland (my previous visit was in 2011). On a variety of different hikes in the western highlands – including a four-day hike in the wilderness area north of Kinlochewe – I captured new impressions of the harsh Scottish landscapes. I added the new pictures to my existing Western Scotland gallery. Below some samples.
