Forlandsund – 31st May 2016

Why can’t I just stay and put up my tent in this landscape here, north of Isfjord? Spend a week or more? Wide tundra with little hills and lakes, a scenic coastline with many little rocky capes and hidden bays. Reindeer so curious that it is almost difficult to get rid of them again 🙂 Grey phalaropes and Snow buntings, mosses growing on ice. Can life in the arctic get any better?

Yes, it can. Thanks to the walrusses on Prins Karls Forland. They were not just curious, they were almost obtrusive. We showed our appreciation by cleaning a good bit of strand from plastic rubbish, that is littering the shorelines in scary amounts, as in most parts of the world’s oceans today.
