A journey from the heart of Europe to the Arctic Circle, driving electric, sailing among remote islands and ski touring on pristine mountains, to show that travelling and exploring with minimal carbon footprint is possible and to inspire others to take action to protect our planet, so that future generations will be able to experience these beautiful environments after us.
One of the highlights of the skiing experience in Lofoten was a day at Rundfjellet. They were the first skiers of the day, so they enjoyed the ski tour with calm, admiring the beauty of this fairytale place. Mountains covered with snow until the sea, hundreds of fjords, magical light.
The hour on the ferry flew by, and once arrived in Vannøy they drove to the House of Books, a cozy place in the middle of nowhere, owned by Marco Rossi a good friend of Lorenzo and Alice. Marco is a sailor and explorer from Italy, who accompanied them in discovering the islands in the Arctic with his sailing boat “Cadeau”, skiing and sailing.
The day after they checked out Segla, probably the most iconic mountain in Senja. where ascent was short and the view breathtaking, skiing next to the rocky face of this stunning mountain was amazing.
Finally, on the last day, Jørgen proposed to show them one of his favorite ski tours, so they drove to the other side of the island to summit Kvaenen.
Embracing their thoughts, trying to impress the beauty of these landscapes in their mind for the last time. Thinking back of all the beautiful moments and the toughest ones, about the sun, about the wind, about the warm and the cold, about the sunrises and the sunsets, the stars and the northern lights. Extremely grateful for everything they were bringing back home: experiences, emotions, learnings.
A different lifestyle is possible – a green, sustainable, futuristic lifestyle, as everyone may like to call it. What is important is that we truly can contribute to preserving the health of our planet through our individual actions – as in the end it’s our life and that of future generations that we will contribute saving.”
