Skje­r­vøy, Nord-Len­an­gen

We depar­ted late night from Finn­kro­ken and set cour­se to the nor­the­ast, to Skje­r­vøy, with high hopes to find orca that had been seen the­re recent­ly. But the wea­ther had dif­fe­rent ide­as. It did not make much sen­se to try to find wha­les in for­ce 6-7 winds, so we just tur­ned and set sail, which was lovely in the snow …

… and a cou­p­le of hour­se later we were in Nord-Len­an­gen, a calm litt­le place in a silent fjord – lovely win­ter sce­ne­ry and atmo­s­phe­re!

Later, back on board, we got into the nort­hern light mode and made pre­pa­ra­ti­ons for fur­ther sightin­gs by having a look at the pho­to­gra­phy side of it (if you are inte­res­ted, then have a look at Rolf’s nort­hern light page for a refres­her). Then we set cour­se to the south, pas­sing Trom­sø, and then hea­ding for Sen­ja.

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 (1): Spitz­ber­gen – vom Polar­licht bis zur Mit­ter­nachts­son­ne”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
