    Have a look at how it is to fly from Slogen on a beautiful autumn day: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/2017/09/26...n-15363207.ece

      If you thought that Sunnmore was only about Marine Industry, Fisheries and Furniture, you have to think again:

        Really .... I had no idea, nor have I ever heard of this brand. I learn something new each day!

          A little avalanche and a bit of snow in the hair is nothing new for those living along Hjorundfjorden:

            Sunnmore is know for it's furniture manufacturing and design, but everybody need to have either apparently.
            This arrangement seen in a restaurant in Aalesund is simple and functional, without much manufacturing or design required:

            At least as far as the "table" goes.

              Have you ever heard of Hessie, the Sea Serpent seen in Hessafjorden in June 1999??
              Not me either, but I came across this article by accident:
              https://books.google.no/books?id=z9g...C3%A6r&f=false
              Apparently another sighting was made in 2001, this time in Storfjorden, on the opposite side of Sula.

              A bit of search only turned up this article:
              http://s8int.com/dino26.html

              I could not find anything about the news in NRK.

                  Easter is when Norwegians who haven't had enough of snow and ice during the winter head for the mountains to look for more. (Those who have head for "Syden")

                  Here in Sunnmore it has been cold clear weather during Easter so far. Here are some pictures from smp.no to prove it:

                  Personally I haven't had skis on my feet for 50 years, so I stay in town.

                      Strange things happens in Sunnmore all the time, but llama hunting is not normal:

                      Don't know if the tweet from the police will translate, but it is in rime.

                        Hjorundfjorden looks like Greenland after avalanche:
                        http://www.smp.no/nyheter/2018/04/15...d-16487511.ece

                        Here is a video of the avalanche taken from a boat in the fjord:

                          A new attraction is coming soon. This former ferry will be operating in Hjorundfjorden both summers and winters:

                          Nice name. I served on another vessel called Slogen, but that was in 1967 and not in Hjorundfjorden.

                          Don't know if this will work, or translate well:

                            Nice looking veteran ship - I find it really great that people still like to operate vessels like these in Norwegian waters. It keeps our fjords special and alive, for sure.

                              I'd like to "do" a winter trip in my favourite fjord. Absolutely stunning, I would imagine.

                            Hjorundfjorden is gaining in popularity and someone take their sweet time to enjoy it. Departed Ulsteinvik 30.12.2017 with ETA Norangsfjorden 02.06.2018:
                            https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais...vessel:CELAVIE
                            That give an average speed of approx. 0.016 kts. Enough time to take in the sights? (Still there)

                            PS> I didn't even know that it was possible to have AIS in a kayak.

                              One more boat for Hjorundfjorden and beyond (but not too far away).
                              Kjell "Kjellen" Biggset has become Shipowner, or at least part-owner, in a veteran boat that will be used as a Show Boat around the fjords in Sunnmore:
                              https://www.smp.no/nyheter/2018/06/0...e-16830098.ece
                              He had plans to build a new boat but this will be first step.
