Stumbled upon this picture of me from back in the days when I used to be a full time dog musher for @svalbardvillmarkssenter in Spitsbergen.
Those where the days!

Dark season is upon us here in the north, and today we’re only two weeks away from Christmas Eve.
The cabins at @svinoyarorbuer in Lofoten looks real cozy in the winter light. The stars of the Big Dipper hangs over the cabins as the rear of the dipper shows us the direction to the Stella Polaris, the star that showed the old Vikings the direction of true north!

Be adventurious, be curious.
Seek new places, and you’re suddenly inside the frozen silent world of a glacier. Spitsbergen.

Early morning, early dark season Orcas of northern Norway.
This year they have moved their entrance point to the fjords much further north than they have used to. More advanced to reach, but still spectacular.

The Alfa and the Omega.
Lots of Wolf teeth, but luckily not so much biting.

Spitsbergen.
The frozen fjord in front of a glacier. The natural place for Polar Bears to do their hunt for seals.
This picture I captured thanks to the sharp eye of my dear friend Silje @svalbard1979

Evening routines on dogsled expeditions:
Fix the dogs, fix the tent and build an extremely important infrastructure in snow and ice for the night: the toilet shelter!
Unconf in the begining, but after a few days you start to value this simple wall that covers you from the freeeezing cold arctic wind.

Game changer!
Yesterday I drove seven hours north, and slept through the night in my stationvagon in -5C. All to get new images of whales.
The herring have changed their path and comes into the fjords much further north than usual. Where herring goes, there goes the whales.
So here I am, let’s see if I get lucky!

The Toyota Land Cruiser.
To me it is a manifest of adventure and exploration. A sturdy ship on a sea of savannah or jungle, bringing us safely into the deep of new horizons.
Add superb local knowledge in your skilled drivers and guides like @lekinasiloma and @milton_1964 , then youre heading for memories for a lifetime.

Imagine to be five, and get to stand in the roof hatch of a Land Cruiser on the Kenyan savannah to see and hear a wild elephant family pass by!
I am so glad we got to give our son these impressions. All thanks to our great friend in Kenya @lekinasiloma , a good friend and a superb safariguide. Highly recommended!

That terrible fantastic day!
Svalbard

Cruise along the cold coasts, on a voyage of discovery for superb arctic light streaming down over mountainpeaks, nunataks and impressive glaciers. Glaciers that looks like huge frozen rivers, slowly being pushed down to the ocean. -And then there’s the unique wildlife...

We need darkness so that the brightest stars can shine.
Polar night is covering Svalbard for months now.
Get out, and you’ll see that there’s lots of light out there.
Low aurora going south over mainland Norway.

This morning I woke up to some really bad weather, that not at all suits my plan of photography for today.
Therefor I post a picture from another bad weather day, that turned out to be gold.
Let’s hope this one would turn into one as well, for all of us 😊

Late afternoon, as quiet as it gets.
Able boatsman @trulstrulstruls the #jackrussellterrier has left his post at the SUP-board, so his Captain @karischibevaag could perform her acrobatics in the middle of the Kirkefjord in Lofoten 😊
