Hurtigruten Voyage Day 9

A part of the narrow Risøyrenna. No problem for a small fishing boat. Our ship is much larger...

Heading for Stokmarknes, we have a wall of rock on the other side of Hadselfjorden.

Leaving Stokmarknes, we are heading for that wall of rock...

...and slowly sailing into it! Through the narrow 20 kilometres long Raftsundet, squeezed between high mountains.

Coming to the end of Raftsundet

Sailing further on, towards Svolvær. Oh, isn't it a couple of trolls up there to the left!?

In the shadow of the mountains the dusk begins long before the sun sets.
