Krossfjord

I don’t mind repeating this again: A day taken directly from an arctic fairy tale. The sun remained with us, and with this kind of weather, Krossfjord is unbeatably beautiful. Bluegreen water, mighty glaciers, dark, wild mountains, green slopes. I know, I have already written similar sentences similar elsewhere. I can’t help it, I am simply not a great writer, I have never pretended anything different. But nature can everything up here, and it’s that what counts.

The glacier hike today has best chances to be very high on the list of the greatest hikes this summer. The photos will tell it all, I hope, as soon as they are online in a couple of days from now.

To add icing on the cake, we were welcomed with a BBQ on the beach. How good can life be!

We could happily have called it a great day, but there is always something exciting going on here as long as you can keep your eyes open. Another fjord another glacier, another world. Perfect mirror images on the water. A polar bear on the shore, with the sun from behind, surrounded by pieces of glacier ice shining like diamonds. An arctic wonderland.
