Ribbing Arctic Norway

We arrived in Arctic Norway a few days ago. Towed the RIB all the way there, 3000 kilometers of driving through cold and snow.
Hopefully the weather will improve, we are in a gale now.

De-icing and launching the RIB in snowy conditions.

With rib in arctic Norway - gale

There is a lot of storm activity in arctic Norway at the moment. This is a video of today. We were a few hours on the water to look for whales during a gale. We stayed in the sheltered area of the fjord.

That takes a bit of commitment! Are you doing this for work or pleasure?
