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.

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.

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!
