Gallery 4: Krossfjord

In light snowfall, Lilliehöökbreen in Krossfjord provided a totally different experience than Monacobreen just a day ago. This was a bit of arctic winter atmosphere, and the same applied to our afternoon landing in Signehamna. We then went off to hide in Fjortende Julibukta as both barometer and weather forecast spoke a clear language, not leaving any doubt that a safe, sheltered anchorage would be important for the night and most parts of tomorrow. So we waited some rather stormy hours out until we could go ashore again in the afternoon, and there was more to come later, as the wind had dropped down and we saw a Fin whale in Krossfjord, to our surprise and delight!
