Of kings and trolls and other things…

In August/September 2014, Lesley Haines and Rick Wells joined a bunch of Skippy-eating Aussies for four weeks north of the Arctic Circle. Join them as they revisit the glaciers, saunas, berry fields, and spectacular auroras of Sweden's Kungsleden (King's Highway), and the craggy, wet and wild wonders of Norway's Lofoten archipelago.
