Spring in Flørli

The Fosshike is finished! So a couple of weeks ago now, we finished the Fosshike! We are Hessel with volunteer Andreas. It was fun to do, but even better to get it over with. It's been a huge project - completing it almost feels unreal. Check out the video's in the slider. Hope now is that many people will hike it this summer and have an awesome experience of raw nature! It's spring...

Corona and Flørli

How corona is affecting Flørli now Hessel is all alone in Flørli. I've been alone more or less since Emma left back to Australia 9th march. Andreas a Norwegian volunteer came to help out a few days with the waterfall path. Other then that, I've been in Flørli working alone as if the rest of the world would not exist. Haven't talked to a living soul for weeks now. Every now and then a...

More on the waterfall hike

It's a daunting task, but nearing completion! Many volunteers have helped in the process. Recently Andreas came and helped for a couple of days. Now, Hessel is back to doing things alone as there are currently no volunteers. It's good fitness to run up and down that mountain! The top of the hike is 350 metres above fjord level. We had forgotten to fly up enough wooden poles to secure...

New project: Jordkjeller

We're still working on that neverending waterfall hike - more on that later! But meanwhile on raindydays, we have been making a new room in an old, disused "bunker" next to the School Pub. It was all full of sand and rubbish before. No electricity, rotten door, no oven, dark and damp. Now look: it's become cosy in there! Helping out were: Arno, Emma and Hessel. Maria took part at the...

The Waterfall Hike is coming along

After two, almost three weeks of fulltime stairs building, we now finally got it airlifted. Upcoming weeks will be used to mount and secure the stairs, build bridges, put markers and signs. Heroic work by Arno, Emma, Andreas and Hessel to pull the up to 100kg stair sections into position. A lot of up and down that...

Building wooden stairs

We're currently making a new spectacular hiking path! To the Flørli waterfall. It will be a two hour path into the canyon to the foot of the waterfall, then beside the waterfall to the top. From there it will continue to the main path at Flørlistølen. Because the terrain is so steep, we figure we will need 120 metres wooden stairs to avoid erosion and give people a good hiking...
