“Did you sleep well, Tormod whispers. The sleeping bag worked wonders, and with the hat pulled down over the forehead in the crisp winter air, we slept like a log. Perhaps with the help of the giant Hunderfossen troll? We kick-sled back to Hunderfossen Hotel where a delightful breakfast is served after a little sauna time, a perfect ending to a night in winter wonderland.”
