Nordaustland – 12th August 2019

The lagoon Claravågen on the Hinlopen-coast of Nordaustland is definitely a spot where you can anchor in peace and solitude: the approach uncharted, with shallows here and there, the entrance narrow, with strong tidal currents. Perfect for us on Arctica II.

The area is high arctic, barren and frost-beaten, with large ice wedges that look liked carved into the ground by giants with huge axes. A fascinating land! The weather fits the arctic atmosphere: cold, with wind and snow.

Later, we had a look at the old research station at Kinnvika in Murchisonfjord (Panos here).

On our way south, we passed Sparreneset, where the shrimp trawler Northguider is still sitting on the rocks near the shore.
