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.
