From Krossfjor­den up to Mag­da­le­n­efjord – 03 August 2018

Now it was time for a good hike, so we took off for a cou­p­le of hours in Krossfjor­den, having at look at the remains of a Ger­man wea­ther sta­ti­on from the dark years of the Second World War and then hiking up to some hills and rid­ges which pro­vi­ded some gre­at views over the wide coas­tal plain that stret­ches from here to the west coast, cal­led Die­sets­let­ta.

And who would have thought that we were able to explo­re this coas­tal plain from the other side just a few hours later? The coast of Die­sets­let­ta is very expo­sed and it is defi­ni­te­ly not on the list of com­mon­ly used lan­ding sites, but today it was so calm that we just had to use the oppor­tu­ni­ty! A beau­ti­ful rocky coast with some small, hid­den beaches, a wide-open tun­dra land with lakes and rivers and moun­tains with inte­res­ting colours and struc­tures fur­ther inland.

After a cou­p­le of calm hours the anchor went to the bot­tom in beau­ti­ful sur­roun­dings in Mag­da­le­n­efjord, whe­re Pål took care of today’s catch of fish.
