Krossfjord – 20th September 2016

Weaking up with the Fjortende Juli glacier right in front of us was a grand way to start the day. We then went ashore in Signehamna, visiting the remains of a German weather station from the dark days of the Second World War and then turning our attention back to nature with reindeer, polar fox and views over fjord and glacier.

After a visit to the steep glacier Tinayrebreen, from which mighty ice avalanches frequently fell down to the water with a roaring thunder, another landing did initially not want to work because of a polar bear in the area. But we found a hidden, „unknown“ valley instead, a lovely place and now we know where all the reindeer in the region are hiding J the density of reindeer was indeed quite impressive.
