Kross­fjord – 17th Sep­tem­ber 2021

The night was less rough than expec­ted and we arri­ved just on time in Kross­fjord to enjoy the sce­n­ery and wild­life in Sig­ne­ham­na with some walks and good hikes.

Then we went on and con­tin­ued into the nor­the­as­tern branch of Kross­fjord. Stun­ning sce­n­ery with jag­ged moun­ta­ins and many gla­ciers, which are now rapidly shrin­king but still beau­tiful. A polar bear was res­t­ing on one of the slo­pes, far away.

Click on thumb­nail to open an enlar­ged ver­si­on of the spe­ci­fic pho­to.

We went ashore to visit Lloyd’s Hotel, which has been the­re for about a cen­tu­ry, show­ing that crui­se tou­rism in the Arc­tic is not a very recent inven­ti­on.
