Kongsfjord-Krossfjord – 07 August 2019

After a lovely, calm and sun­ny night in the har­bour of Ny-Åle­sund, we don’t want to miss the oppor­tu­ni­ty to visit the air­s­hip mast whe­re the famous air­s­hips Nor­ge and Ita­lia took of for their famous north pole flights in 1926 and 1928, respec­tively. It is easy to spend some time with tel­ling sto­ries during this short walk.

Gal­le­ry – Kongsfjord-Krossfjord – 07 August 2019

Later, we turn into Kongsfjord to enjoy the view of the lar­ge gla­ciers and the silence, which is fre­quent­ly inter­rup­ted by the thun­der of pie­ces of ice fal­ling down from the gla­cier front. Then we move to Krossfjord for a late after­noon walk in Ebeltoft­ham­na, whe­re Kurt Wege­ner ran an obser­va­to­ry in 1912-1914. They did some gre­at sci­en­ti­fic work and even impro­vi­sed a tech­ni­que to mea­su­re the height of the nort­hern lights!
