Harefjord – 3rd Sep­tem­ber 2019

As men­tio­ned, the­re are not too many good ancho­ra­ges in many parts of Green­land, aber the­re are some. We spent a calm night in a small bay in Harefjord, one of Scoresbysund’s inner bran­ches.

The inland ice is not far from here, so we wan­ted to get as clo­se as we could. It does not have to be a cros­sing of the inland ice. If that is real­ly what you want is a ques­ti­on that ever­yo­ne has his or her own ans­wer for. Per­so­nal­ly, I appre­cia­te the varie­ty and the beau­ty of the fjord land­s­capes. Such as here, in Harefjord. Musk oxen here and the­re on the slo­pes. We climb a ridge and a morai­ne to find our­sel­ves sit­ting abo­ve a crev­as­sed gla­cier. Stun­ning views of an ama­zing land­s­cape. This is as clo­se to the inland ice as we can get here and now. We are more than hap­py with this.

The­re are beau­ti­ful hills and moun­tains ever­y­whe­re here, and you can walk or climb as far and as high as you wish, can and have time. Time is not unli­mi­ted for us, but we have enough for abso­lute­ly stun­ning views of Harefjord and suroun­dings.

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!
