Gallery - From the north coast into Hinlopen Strait

The north coast brought the only moment of real moment of unhap­pi­ness to this trip: one wrong step, a fall, an inju­red knee, a heli­c­op­ter – that is how quick­ly a trip can come to an ear­ly end here. You have to be careful with every step. Only when things go wrong, you rea­li­ze how far away from zivi­li­sa­ti­on you real­ly are.

After a visit to the gre­at lakes in Wij­defjord, a small group star­ted the first over­night hike from Mos­sel­buk­ta with tents and hea­vy ruck­sacks. Crossing Mos­sel­hal­vøya was a chall­enge which reward­ed us rich­ly with stun­ning sce­n­ery that is rare­ly seen by human eyes.

In Hin­lo­pen, we got thril­led by the wild­life, befo­re we wan­ted to ven­ture on ano­ther seve­ral day long hike. This, howe­ver, did not hap­pen, the com­bi­na­ti­on of polar bears whe­re we did not want them, den­se­ly drif­ting pie­ces gla­cier ice and strong winds did not lea­ve much room for doubt.
