Hyt­te­vi­ka – Dunøya­ne – 21st August 2022

It is good to be back on the west coast. The south cape can be a bit of a chall­enge, depen­ding on wind and wea­ther, but it went well again and we arri­ved in Hyt­te­vi­ka alre­a­dy during the mor­ning. That is the place whe­re the legen­da­ry fema­le trap­per Wan­ny Wold­stad win­tered a cou­ple of times during the 1930s.

Later we made a landing on Dunøya­ne. Bird have been bree­ding the­re every sum­mer for thou­sands of years, which is cle­ar­ly seen on the rich tun­dra of the­se small islands, and the rich bird life is stun­ning also after the bree­ding sea­son (during which the islands may not be visi­ted).
