Eyafjor­dur – 26th August 2019

You don’t have to be a pro­fes­sio­nal meteo­ro­lo­gist to see whe­re you do cur­r­ent­ly not want to be with a 20 meter sai­ling boat. Given the choice to sit in a hot pool in Akureyri’s fabu­lous public swim­ming pool ins­tead. I would call this an easy choice our wea­ther win­dow will open up, it is not far away any­mo­re. But not now.

Gal­le­ry – Eyafjor­dur – 26th August 2019

We are lea­ving at noon, sai­ling nor­thwards through the long Eyafjor­dur. Light rain sho­wers are alter­na­ting with blue ski­es and hot sunshi­ne, pro­du­cing a wide mix of tem­pe­ra­tu­re varia­ti­ons and light impres­si­ons, inclu­ding some lovely rain­bows. Hump­back wha­les show their blows and flu­kes a cou­p­le of times, while we are pas­sing small islands and har­bours, moun­tains and waters­falls on our way to the north coast. Our desti­na­ti­on for today is Grimsey, the nort­hern­most inha­bi­ted part of Ice­land, an island situa­ted direct­ly on the arc­tic cir­cle. The­re, we want to wait a day or so until the storm bet­ween Ice­land and Green­land has cal­med down.

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (3): Die Bären­in­sel und Jan May­en”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
