Rabot­breen 1

Rabot­breen is an important step­ping stone to the east coast or to the north. After pas­sing the wide-open Sas­send­a­len, the morai­ne of Rabot­breen can be an obs­ta­cle that may be a chall­enge for novice snow mobi­le dri­vers. The exact rou­te is a bit dif­fe­rent from year to year, depen­ding on the snow con­di­ti­ons.

It is well worth taking a litt­le walk up one of the hig­her morai­ne hills to enjoy the view. The morai­ne its­elf is lar­ge and very impres­si­ve. The tran­si­ti­on from the morai­ne to the actu­al gla­cier (Rabot­breen) is mark­ed by a lar­ge melt­wa­ter pond which may have water also in win­ter. Due to this blue water/ice area, the place is inof­fi­ci­al­ly also refer­red to as „blue eye“.

Here we are alre­a­dy a bit hig­her up on Rabot­breen, at the tran­si­ti­on towards Nord­manns­fon­na. The land­scape is get­ting wider and more icy. Small ice crys­tals in the air have crea­ted a halo around the sun.
