Today we left the sheltered waters of Norway and entered the Norwegian Sea on our way to Shetland. We navigated between twelve-foot-high seas. It would have been a nightmare crossing for most ships, but it wasn’t a problem for National Geographic Resolution.

Thanks to our naturalists, we learned about the Vikings, photography, birds, and plants during the day. We enjoyed some delicious pastries at teatime as we watched fulmars and gannets fly by our ship.

Sea days are the best for catching up with the thousands of pictures already taken during the expedition. We submitted photos to ebird and happywhale, and we also got to know our ship, which is filled with very unique art.
