Troll­fjord-Skro­va – 02nd Novem­ber 2017

The wind in Raft­sund, whe­re we had ancho­red for the night, was real­ly strong, but it beca­me a bit less in the ear­ly mor­ning. The com­bi­na­ti­on of the fjords and islands, rug­ged moun­ta­ins, wind and snow made a very true and scenic impres­si­on of this harsh natu­re: wild and beau­tiful. This is how natu­re often is in the far north. Of cour­se, the­re is some­ti­mes a blue, sun­ny sky and calm water. But this here is nor­mal life. Wild and beau­tiful.

„Wild“ and „beau­tiful“ chan­ged in Troll­fjord by the minu­te, as the snow squalls came and went. From zero visi­bi­li­ty to clear views of the moun­ta­ins, from calm waters to screa­ming winds within moments.

We were just about to lea­ve when a who­le fami­ly of 3 sea eagles came along. Seve­ral times, they flew past the ship in clo­se distance. Good fun to have a fast came­ra now 🙂

The attri­buts „wild“ and „beau­tiful“ were also an appro­pria­te descrip­ti­on of our after­noon visit to Skro­va. Ente­ring the har­bour bet­ween all tho­se rocks and sker­ries is always impres­si­ve, and then we were along­side. Soon we were rea­dy for take-off to explo­re this love­ly litt­le island, wal­king through the litt­le sett­le­ment around the har­bour, across the island to some beau­tiful litt­le bays with white sand bea­ches. Wind, cold, snow and approa­ching dark­ness could not keep some bra­ve hikers to ascend Skro­vaf­jel­let. The reward came in shape of stun­ning views over the sea and islands.

We made the short pas­sa­ge to Kabel­våg in the evening. The fore­cast for tomor­row pro­mi­sed more wind, so it was good to get the­re today.
