It’s been a good day today, with 21,7 km done in nine hours including breaks.  

Our position:

Good conditions with a beautiful sky and sun and clouds that came and went. Gentle climb to about 1000 meters of altitude. All are well and doing fine, strong team. We saw mountains both to the left and right, we are walking on a ridge called Asgardsfonna, an old viking name.

Regards, Borge.
