Actually Sweden was the first planned destination with our converted Land Rover Dirscovery 3, but unfortunately or luckily we met a breeder for French Water Dogs (Barbet) from Switzerland shortly before our departure. Since we have been thinking about adding such a small curly friend to our herd for almost two years, it was clear that we would have to pay Switzerland a visit. Now the way from Central Germany via Switzerland to Sweden is a not to be neglected detour of about 1200 km. So we changed our plans at short notice and drove south via Switzerland to Corsica.
Untouched nature, remote fishing villages, deep fjords, lonely beaches surrounded by majestic mountains. And all this far north of the Arctic Circle.
After our winter tour from Tromsø to Narvik, I swore to come up here again in the summer time in order to have a closer look to the many small islands of the Lofoten and the surrounding area.
This time without northern lights but with the advantages of the midnight sun.
