Backpacking in Lofoten in July and our cooking will be done with a Trangia, the fuel source being methylated spirit. We are flying in so obviously cannot bring any on the flight. Is this easily located in Svolvaer and does it have a special name because it was a nightmare to find in France.
There is a post in this forum about this (unfortunately in french) . You might find methylated spirits at the gas stations in Svolvaer. It use to be sold also at the sport shop Skandinavisk (in Svolvaer). People wrote in a previous post that the found it in some official camping sites on the Lofoten.
I personally use gas which is more easy to find in the Lofoten (virtually every where)
Have a nice trek in the Lofoten
u can find gas in most supermarkets.
You can find « Rødspirit » everywhere in the Lofoten islands. (When I say everywhere, I mean in any Gas station and most of the Supermarkets).
It look like this (see attached picture) and it is called “Rødspirit – Husoholdningssprit” the brand name is “Kemetyl”.
