Hornsund – 28th May, 2017

We are getting to Hornsund in the late evening. A calm night at anchor near a glacier which is shining in the sun – what a place, what a life! These are words by Wanny Woldstad, who spent some years in Hornsund in the 1930s. She must have known!

We have also got a good life here, not for several years, but for one day, at least. We start with a walk at Gnålodden. Snow and ice, rocks and tundra, seabirds on the cliff, views of glaciers and mountains.

Later, we see even more ice and more glaciers in innermost Hornsund. Now we are leaving the fjord, silently under sail, as they have done it here for centuries.
