This morning around 7:15 we crossed into the Arctic circle. The tour leaders made a bit of a fuss but it was a simply beautiful morning as you can see in this picture:
It didn’t get dark at all last night but tonight we are officially in the land of the midnight sun & will be for the next 4 nights. Everywhere we look, it is so pretty. There’s a great deal of snow on some of the mountains & it’s quite cold on deck but lovely & warm inside. This is the marker which signifies 66°33 minutes & the Arctic circle. We had early lunch today & then went on a great adventure which will be the focus of the next blog.
