During our stay at Kap Høgh, the sea-ice further south, between Snuden and Rathbone Ø, unexpectedly broke off. That made it impossible for us to travel back to Ittoqqortoormiit along the coast. Instead, we had to sled north-west, through Horsens Fjord, Kalkdal and Hurry Fjord to return home.

The dogs are having fun – in spite of deeper snow conditions – all through the valley

A well deserved rest – still in Kalkdal

Jameson Land – that is where our next journey would take us!
