Gallery 5: Wide-open tundra in Sorgfjord

Crossing 80degrees under sail, north pole expeditions and Harbour seals on Danskøya

Some are stea­ming up moun­tains for gre­at sce­nic views, and others are enjoy­ing the coas­tal sce­ne­ry, taking men­tal trips back to the days of the wha­lers and explo­rers.

We have cros­sed 80 degrees befo­re, but now the time of day allows to appre­cia­te this event pro­per­ly, befo­re we con­ti­nue along the north coast under sail to the nor­thwest cor­ner, whe­re more than 100 years ago north pole expe­di­ti­ons left their traces. The north pole has been found later, explo­rers have left. The har­bour seals are still the­re, qui­te a few of them.
