We wanted to get at least one ‘proper’ walk in during dad and mum’s visit, but the weather conspired against us until the very last day (it would have been a bit pointless walking very high just to see the inside of a cloud). However, the forecast was better last Monday, so we set of up Kistefjell (1003m / 3300 feet).
Despite a couple of brief bouts of drizzle we made it to the top dry, although the last mile or so we were in cloud. We were beginning to think that despite the clear forecast we wouldn’t see anything (even the huge radio mast was hidden) until suddenly the clouds started to part, first revealing the tower (we were almost there but didn’t realise) and then long distance (40 mile+) views over Senja and mid-Troms. Whilst we didn’t get a full 360 degree panorama, we did see most of the view.
