The Frozen Latitudes Expedition
I just returned from the Frozen Latitudes expedition to Spitsbergen which was an incredible early winter experience on the sailing boat Noorderlicht into the land of the low light. Read about Longyearbyen, huge glaciers, the Russian ghost town Pyramiden and enjoy magical photographic impressions.

If there is one experience that blows my mind every time when travelling into the Arctic night, it is the the colorful Aurora Borealis in the Night Sky.
One winter I traveled to the remotest settlement of the world. Read more about my touching experience from a small Inuit community in the High Arctic.
I have been traveling to the Arctic since decades. Nature is so close and so vast. In this amazing silence, I often think about gratitude and spiritual insights. What is a man in the wilderness of the Arctic?
Have you seen the huge polar bear tracks crossing your path, how Musk Oxen survive the harsh winter conditions or that Arctic hares eat their excrements to survive the Arctic winter?
Since 30 years, I travel into the High Arctic. It would be an understatement if I'd say that this time has influenced my life, mind and Soul. Here is, how it all started.
