Norwegian Experience Day 7: Isfjorden

Isfjorden from the south shore near DeGeerdalen, Svalbard, Norway.

Today Rob Kodalen and his wife Donna, our Norwegian Experience winners, are making their last pass by Spitsbergen aboard the MS Fram, courtesy of Borton Overseas and Sons of Norway. Did you miss the past few days of trip coverage? Check out our daily blog posts here.

As the last day of sightseeing, Rob and Donna will be spending the day enjoying the sights of the Isfjorden. In central Spitsbergen, the Isfjorden is the largest fjord system in Svalbard. One of the most prominent mountains here is Alkhorn, where thousands of Brünnich’s guillemots nest during the summer season. In the afternoon the expedition team will search for a fitting bay where tour participants can make their last expedition landing.

Be sure to check back to the blog in the next few weeks for our wrap up interview with Rob about the big trip, and don’t forget you too can be eligible to win the Norwegian Experience contest! All you have to do is recruit one new, dues-paying member and make sure your name is listed in the “referred by” field. Entries are taken from members recruited between January 1st and December 31st, 2012. Also, remember that you can enter as many times as you recruit throughout the year, which increases your chances of winning!
