Arctic Circle and Svartisen

Good morning from Narvik.

The weather was really good yesterday.  Calm seas,  bright sunshine and lovely clear Arctic skies.   Funchal's passengers were out on deck to watch as we crossed the Arctic Circle and started our approach towards the Svartisen Glacier.

It was easy to see the ice fields as we sailed on towards the glacier.  The early evening light brought a contrast of colour to the white ice,  a lot less ice than in our August visit.

Sunset and a bright moon completed our evening for us as MV Funchal sailed away from the glacier and headed towards Narvik- where we're now moored on a bright, cold morning.
