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.

Click on thumb­nail to open an enlar­ged ver­si­on of the spe­ci­fic pho­to.

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.
