The 1996 expedition
We travelled from Longyearbyen (Spitsbergen, Svalbard) with the
seal hunting vessel Polarstar of Ålesund. Our first place of
visit was the Sabine Island.
We sailed south along the coast and fjords and left Greenland after
visiting the area where Helge Ingstad stayed while serving as an
official Norwegian representative, Antartichavn.
During this trip, we hiked from the innermost part of Franz Josef fjord
with the objective of climbing the highest peak in North-East Greenland,
Peterman (see below for a more extensive report).
