I’ve just spent 2 fantastic weeks in Artic Svalbard. 8 days on ship M/S Freya with our guides from Artic Adventures. I can’t say enough good things about our guides Jens and Audun, expect that they are the best guides you can ask for. I also have to send a special thank you to the crew on M/S Freya who did an amazing job.
Our trip took us on a south bound direction from Longyearbyen towards Sørkapp, Edgeøya, Nordaustlandet, Sjuøyane and then back on the west side to Longyearbyen. Some of the highlight on the trip where polar bears, blue whale, walrus, artic fox and the fantastic landscape.
This is the complete art list from our trip between august 17-24
Common ringed plover
Atlantic white-sided dolphin
Arctic fox (3 sigthings)
Polar bear (12 sigthings)
Horned Grebe and Whooper Swan at a small pond in Småland, Sweden. Filmed with Nikon D500 and Nikkor 600mm in 4K.
A not so common Red-footed Falcon visiting Småland, Sweden. Photographed and filmed with Nikon D500 and Nikkor 600mm.
There’s nothing that holds more appeal than the classic road trip. Norway has some of the most beautiful views a country can offer. In 2017, I drove across Østlandet, Vestlandet and part of mid Norway. The journey started in mid May and lasted 2 weeks, in total I drove 460 km. I wanted to get to know as much as I could before leaving Sweden. There are plenty of sources I used and here are some, Google (Google map)
Norgekart (very detailed map of Norway)
Nasjonale Turistveger (Information about must see roads)
Vegvesen (Current information about the roads)
Visitnorway (Great source of information)
