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.
