Batterie Dietl, Engeløya 🇳🇴

One of Europe’s largest coastal fortifications from the Second World War. Three of the world’s largest guns were here firing shells with a diameter of 40.6 cm/16 inches.

The fortifications guarded the entrance to Vestfjorden and the important route to Narvik, from where iron ore from Sweden was shipped to the German arms industry. 🔗

Borgvattnets Prästgård, Borgvattnet 🇸🇪

Borgvattnet Spökprästgård, was built in 1876. The first ghost stories came to surface in 1927, when vicar Nils Hedlund wrote about it in a letter. His mother, Marta, died in the house in 1907 during childbirth. His father, Per, couldn’t face the fact his wife passed away and he buried her in the backyard. When the locals found out a couple of days later, they demanded him to bury Marta at the cemetery.

Per agreed, but the next day the whole Hedlund family had disappeared, along with Marta’s body. Nils Hedlund came back to live at the vicarage after his father died. He saw all his laundry being pulled from the drying rack in the garden. There was no wind that day and he could clearly see the laundry was being pulled. And he wasn’t the last person to be affected by the hauntings. 🔗

Hotel Union Øye, Øye 🇳🇴

A few years after the hotel’s grand opening, a maid called Linda fell head over heels in love with a German soldier who served Kaiser Wilhelm II.

Because there’s no tragedy without a love triangle, Linda’s lover was of course, already committed to another. After asking his wife for a divorce and being refused (the shame!), he killed himself. Then Linda, upon learning her lover’s fate, drowned herself.

Fast forward several hundred years and Linda still hasn’t gotten over her grief. She can be heard sobbing inconsolably in the Blue Room from time to time. 🔗

Den Nationale Scene, Bergen 🇳🇴

Over the years, several employees at Den Nationale Scene have claimed that they met Octavia Sperati in the theater building – 100 years after she died. It is said that she can sometimes be heard in the hallways of the old house on Engen.

Fortunately, most people think that the legendary actor is a kind house ghost. 🔗

The road to the summit is called Tindevegen. It’s 32 km long and links Øvre Årdal deep in Sognefjord to Turtagrø in Jotunheimen. The road is a toll road open from May to November. Just a short walk from the road, you can enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the Hurrungane peaks and Store Skagastølstind mountain in the east, and of the inner reaches of the Sognefjord and Skjolden in the west. 🔗
