From Rødeø, we con­tin­ued nor­thwards through the beau­tiful Rødefjord, deep in Score­s­by­sund. In Sne­sund, ano­ther branch, we could expe­ri­ence a small, but love­ly gla­cier from nea­rest distance, even making some steps on it for tho­se who wan­ted to, while Ópal was taking freshwa­ter from a crys­tal-clear melt­wa­ter stream. Yes, if you were won­de­ring, why the ship is “bea­ched” in the video, that’s why, it was not an acci­dent, but inten­ded. The ship is very strong, no pro­blem, and this way it is easy to use a hose and get the water. And you can actual­ly get off and on the ship wit­hout the Zodiac 🙂 but it is admit­ted­ly a bit of a climb, so not ever­y­bo­dy went that way.

In Rypefjord, we obser­ved musko­xen and had a rather cra­zy bon­fi­re in fal­ling snow, cra­zy, but an unfor­gettable evening, very arc­tic! We then con­tin­ued the jour­ney through the migh­ty Øfjord back to the east, making ano­ther stop at the islands of Bjør­neøer (“Bear Islands”), enjoy­ing some more fan­ta­stic views, befo­re we con­tin­ued to Itto­q­qor­toor­mi­it.
