Now we were keen on get­ting up to Nord­aus­t­land. Next to a lar­ge­ly calm day and some rest that came with it, the pas­sa­ge up the­re pro­du­ced yet ano­ther rare wild­life sight­ing, name­ly a very curious Min­ke wha­le. Also some­thing you don’t neces­s­a­ri­ly see every day.

We made a litt­le hike on Cherm­si­deøya that had hard­ly been done by many peo­p­le befo­re us, but we had to rea­li­se that even the­re, in such a remo­te cor­ner of the Arc­tic, the­re is pla­s­tic lit­ter all over the place. Ter­ri­ble! A never-ending sto­ry, this pla­s­tic-dis­as­ter.

On we went to some rather remo­te and hid­den places on Nord­aus­t­land. Score­s­by­øya was guard­ed by a polar bear, so we did not spend too much time the­re, but we could explo­re the Ger­man war-wea­ther­sta­ti­on of Hau­de­gen wit­hout being dis­tur­bed. Then the­re was the exci­ting ques­ti­on wether or not we were able to make a real­ly long hike on Nord­aus­t­land. Well, too low clouds. But the shorter hike that we made ins­tead was still long enough and in any case beau­tiful. Yet ano­ther hid­den part of the Arc­tic that few peo­p­le have ever seen.

Then it was time to move on towards Hin­lo­pen Strait. We explo­red Kinn­vi­ka and Murch­ison­fjor­den and got stun­ned at the bird cliff at Alkef­jel­let. We made a hike across Von Otterøya and got to see the long ice cliff of Brås­vell­breen.
