Northbound: An Expedition to Norway in Photos

22 Nov, 2016

Even after being back in Germany I somehow still cannot fully fathom all the impressions and experiences Norway had to offer us. The raw beauty of this country and the rare animal encounters completely overwhelmed me. It is amazing how some moments can just leave you speechless and in absolute astonishment. Find out more here about my trip to Norway.

Northbound: An Expedition to Norway

When I received an email nearly a month ago with the invitation to join a whale expedition to Vengsøy in Norway I couldn’t help but dance and cheer joyfully through my apartment. Sebastian, who organizes these amazing expeditions, invited me to document one of his trips on film and afterward produce a short film about it. An absolute dream-come-true for me and one of the main reasons I love what I do so much.

In a later post I will of course tell you more about the trip, but here I first want to give you some photo impressions to give you an idea of what an amazing country Norway is and of all the unique things we saw and experienced on this expedition. The film of course will follow very soon 😉

I want to thank Sebastian from Forschungsreisen.org, that gave me the opportunity of experiencing this amazing adventure. If you are also interested in one of these very unique trips, I urge you to book one of Sebastian’s expeditions to Norway, Kenia, Patagonia or the Seychelles at www.forschungsreisen.org. Believe, it’ll be worth it!

Also check out Sebastian’s Facebook page for updates and photos of current expeditions!

 
Have you ever been to Norway or have maybe even seen Orcas or humpbacks in the wild before?
