Van Mijenfjord

Some­ti­mes, the back of a goo­se is enough for hig­hest arc­tic plea­su­res. Cer­tain­ly if this goo­se back is Gåski­len, the wes­tern out­lier of Mid­ter­hu­ken, this won­der­ful moun­tain bet­ween Van Mijen­fjord and Van Keu­len­fjord, 300 metres high, with ama­zing views over Bellsund.

A gla­cier in the sun for desert, and then ano­t­her back, may­be of a dino­saur, it is big, any­way. Eight kilo­me­tres of hard lime­stone, a few hund­red metres wide only, with frut­ti di mare as old as the hills. Some­ti­mes, even 50 metres are enough for gre­at views.

Then it was alrea­dy time to cele­bra­te a trip that tur­ned out to be a gre­at one, des­pi­te a tough start, wea­ther-wise. Incredi­ble how time is fly­ing. But the­re is still a day to come.

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (1): Spitz­ber­gen – vom Polar­licht bis zur Mit­ter­nachts­son­ne”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
