Welcome to fjordpeaks.com. My name is Arnt Flatmo and this blog is a continuation of westcoastpeaks.com, which will no longer be developed (the hiking log is still updated). On this blog, you will primarily find trip reports from peaks in the western parts of Norway, rising high above the beautiful fjords.
There will also be trip reports from other parts of Norway and even from mountain abroad. Please visit westcoastpeaks.com for a large number of trip reports posted between 1999 and 2015.
You will see some links under the MENU button (upper right corner), which points to a.o.: a) westcoastpeaks, b) map of my ascents, c) my posts on peakbook.org
The language will still be English, and as English is not my native language, please bear over with any errors you may come across.
I was born in 1963 in Nordland county, Norway. I grew up in the Oslo region and moved to Bergen in 1998 – where I started my mountaineering activities. In 2005, I moved to Ålesund and 3 years later I moved to Gurskøy island. My main hobby is “peakbagging” (all seasons), and in the daytime I work as a Solution Analyst and Developer in Rolls-Royce Marine Norway.
My girlfriend is Anne Rudsengen, a field inspector in Statens naturoppsyn ( Norwegian Directorate for Nature Management) and the author of the popular guidebooks Opptur Hordaland and Opptur Sogn og Fjordane. She lives in Sogndal.
