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.
