    In Westman Isles, Iceland mighty forces have shaped the land. The Westman Islands were formed by undersea volcanoes between 5 and 10 millennium years ago. They are among the youngest of the world’s archipelagos.

     

    Islands,mist 01 HDR

     

    In 1963, the world witnessed on film the birth of its newest island, Surtsey. It was declared a UNECO World Heritage Site for its importance as a pristine natural laboratory.

     

    Heimaey Islands 01

     

    In 1973, Heimaey was threatened by lava flows that nearly closed off its harbor. Visit the crater, where the earth is still hot, and have amazing views of areas that had been engulfed by lava.

    Exploring the West Coast Of Iceland, sail past the immense Latrabjarg cliffs, the westernmost point of Iceland and home to a huge population of razorbills. The cliffs are an area famous for egg collecting: the men were tied to ropes and lowered like spiders down onto the ledges.

     

    Razorbills and Puffins

     

    Next, visit Flatey Island, a trading post for many centuries, for walks around the charming hamlet that grew here.

    Continue to Isafjordur, located in the western fjords and a great place for a hike. Visit a working eiderdown farm, where the farmer shows you how the feathers are collected from the huge number of nesting eider ducks here.

    Tranquil Mykines is known for its overwhelming number of puffins. Take a walk to the nesting grounds, where thousands of puffins take off and land. Bird watch as they go about in their communities and sit in their burrows.

     

    Visit the tiny lighthouse, tethered down with steel cords, used an indicator of winter storms. Then stroll the village with its whimsical turf-roofed houses and church.

    The legacy of the Vikings persists in the Faroe Islands. Though citizens of Denmark, the rugged Faroese are proud of their Viking ancestry, reflected in their ancient language and love of the sea. Visit the tiny capital of Tórshavn. Beautiful wooden boats bob at anchor in the harbor, their curling stems and sterns proudly proclaiming their Viking ancestry. Explore the historic town, mingling with the modern-day Vikings. For things to do visit the surprising little natural history museum, 12th-century St. Olav’s Church; and the archaeological site of Kirkjubøur, a medieval farming and religious center.

    End of the road

    Stop by Selja Island to see the ruins of Selja Abbey, situated by the cave of Saint Sunniva, the guardian saint of Western Norway.

    According to legend, Sunniva, daughter of an Irish king, fled when her country was conquered by heathens and the new king wanted to marry her. She came ashore on the island of Selja and, holed up with followers in her cave, was beset by pagan locals. She prayed that they not fall into heathen hands, whereupon rocks fell, sealing the cave’s entrance. Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease!

    Up a steep hill, from her cave we enjoy Saint Sunniva’s last view — an impressive vista of island and sea. Then stop by Selja Island to see the remains of Selje Abbey, situated by Saint Sunniva’s cave. We hear the legend of the saint and from her cave we enjoy Saint Sunniva’s last view — an impressive vista of island and sea.

    The Lofoten Archpelago is an enchanting area of picturesque villages. The mountains were shaped from glaciers, which carved their faces making them jagged. You get a feel for the beauty and splendor of Lofoten in these pictures.

     

    Reine – Lofoten Islands

     

    Lofoten Islands

     

    Even though Lofoten is north of the Arctic Circle, winter temperatures in Lofoten are very mild. This is a result of the Gulf Stream, whose warm waters and its extensions the North Atlantic Current and the Norwegian Current keep the islands warmer than normal temperatures for other regions at the same latitude.

     

    Lofoten Islands

     

    Lofoten translated means lynx-foot, perhaps because the islands look like one.

    Experience the Midnight Sun during May 25th - July 17th, where the sun doesn't set below the horizon ever.

     

    The Sun doesn't rise from Dec 4th - Jan 7th, leaving the islands in constant darkness.

     

    Lofoten Islands

     

    Visit Reine, a tiny village of red houses built on stilts perched above the sea with a colorful harbor. Scattered over the rocky shores are racks still used for drying the abundant codfish that occur in the waters during late winter and spring.

    99h Trollfjord

     

    Named from the word troll, a figure from Norse mythology, the Trollfjord cuts westwards from the Raftsundet strait as a sidearm of the Raftsund between the Norwegian archipelagos of Lofoten and Vesterålen.

     

    With its narrow entrance, only 100 feet wide, and steep-sided mountains it makes for a dramatic landscape.  You can just imagine the mythological trolls which could have lived here.

     

    99g Trollfjord

     

    The fjord widens to a maximum width of 300 feet.

     

    The mountains surrounding Trollfjord are a staggering 1,000 feet high, with delicate waterfalls.

     

    The Trollfjord is 236 feet at its deepest point.

    Where is Elephant Island?

     

    Elephant Island is an island off the coast of Antarctica in the outer reaches of the South Shetland Islands.

     

    Coordinates: 61°08′S 55°07′W

     

    Why is it called Elephant Island?

     

    Its name was given by early explorers sighting elephant seals on its shores.

     

    Why should you see it?

     

    Elephant Island is the island where Ernest Shackleton, a famous polar explorer landed with the crew from Endurance during the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition (1914–1917). His heroic tale is legendary and involved overcoming impossible odds. His entire team survived due to his unflagging efforts to rescue them from Antarctica's brutal winter.

    The face of Hubbard Glacier

     

    The Hubbard Glacier is the largest calving glacier on the North American continent.

     

    Ice Calving - (of a glacier, an iceberg, etc.) to break off or detach (a piece): The glacier calved an iceberg.

     

    Calving Glaciers are Unresponsive to Climate. Hubbard Glacier is the largest of eight calving glaciers in Alaska that are currently increasing in total mass and advancing. The glaciers that are currently growing and advancing in the face of global warming were retreating throughout the Little Ice Age when most glaciers were growing.

     

    Calving of glaciers is often preceded by a loud cracking or booming sound. This sound can be heard very well in the peace of the Yukutat Bay and you will often hear large splashes.  Hubbard Glacier routinely calves off icebergs as high as 10-story buildings.

     

    It takes about 400 years for ice to traverse the length of the glacier, meaning that the ice at the foot of the glacier is about 400 years old.

     

    Before it reaches the sea, Hubbard is joined by the Valerie Glacier to the west.

     

    Pretty cool for the longest river of ice in North America!

    Go on an Icebergs Adventure at Spencer Lake:

     

    No roads lead to iceberg-choked Spencer Lake, but the Alaska Railroad does. After a scenic trip by rail and lunch, float through Spencer Lake and down the Placer River.

     

    Start your adventure by viewing Spencer Glacier, the huge glacier on the lake. You will get as close as possible while still remaing a safe distance away.

     

    Are you ready to experience icebergs as you never have before? This is a fabulous alternative to whitewater rafting and is perfect for both younger and older party members.

  • See the Northern Lights in Alaska

    8/6/2015 12:39:01 PM Link 0 comments | Add comment

    Are you a wintertime traveler? Do you want to see the Northern Lights dance across the sky? Alaska may be the perfect destination for you. Scientists are predicting increased sunspot activity through 2013, which means the aurora borealis could be more active and colorful than usual. Peak travel times to see the Northern Lights are from late August to late April. A quiet night, a skyline filled with shifting colors, and a camera on night vision mode. Could you ask for a better memory? Well you can do more than just watch and photograph the aurora borealis, you can experience it and have an adventure too. Go dogsledding, snowshoe hiking, dip into natural hot springs, and more.
