Mona­co­b­reen – 20th Sep­tem­ber 2015

The shared gla­cier front of Mona­co­b­reen and Seli­ger­breen does not exist any­mo­re. It has retrea­ted so much that the moun­tain Stortingspre­si­den­ten rea­ches the shore and sepa­ra­tes the form­er­ly shared gla­cier front into two sepa­ra­te ones. Which does not make the who­le sce­n­ery less impres­si­ve. High ice walls, thun­de­ring cal­vings, count­less ice­bergs with shapes and colours no human being could invent. Young kit­ti­wa­kes con­fu­se novice bird­wat­chers. Mean­while, the gla­cier hikers are play­ing in the crev­as­se fields of Mona­co­b­reen.

A polar bear in Ler­nerøya­ne makes a pro­mi­sing appearance just to dis­ap­pear behind a rocky ridge as we get clo­ser. So now we are calm­ly sai­ling – yes, under sail – up Wood­fjord in beau­tiful evening light.
