For the first time in 40 years we went on an organised holiday, taking the Hurtigruten Cruise up the coast of Norway from Bergen to Kirkenes, followed by a short cruise up the coast of Spitsbergen, the main island of the Svalbard archipeligo, eventually reaching 80 degrees North, just 600 miles from the North Pole.
The pictures are now on my Flickr site in 3 sets; one covering the voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes; the next covering the cruise along the Spitsbergen (Svalbard) coast. The third set is a shortened compilation from these two. It covers the whole Norwegian Cruise , including the Spitsbergen section. It can be seen by clicking here.
The videos of this trip can be reached by the links on the right.
