Out of town

7 06 2013

After a heated debate in class about the Mackerel fishery, we departed from Bolungarvik in the evening on the ferry-boat Bjarnarnes – headed north,towards Hornstrandir. The landscape is majestic and is protected as a nature reserve since 1975. Due to the remoteness and harsh nature the last of its human inhabitant moved away about 60 years ago. Thus, the flora and fauna have an exceptional opportunity to blossom and now arctic foxes, birds, seals and plants grow and live there in peace and harmony. The area is only to be reached by foot or by boat.

It was a great sight to see civilization disappear behind us. For the weekend we were without computers, phones, and contact with the outside world!
