Overnight we travelled along the inter-coastal waterway and open ocean before arriving at the island of Froya at 63⁰N. By breakfast we were docked at Sistranda, a village in Trondelag, to the northwest of Trondheim. The small port is on a low volcanic island and a giant roche-moutonnée. Offshore are fish farms and in the distance the mountains of the mainland.

Our explorations took us to a group of preserved farm buildings with grass-topped roofs. We gained access to these, with the help of a teacher at a kindergarten, beyond the gated playground. The farm buildings looked as if their occupiers had just left and abandoned everything. Later we visited the cultural centre and tasted local food.

Apparently this stop was the first for the community and local dignitaries were invited onboard to meet the Captain, as this could be an important event for the village and for them quite fortunate, as the cruise ship giants cannot gain access.

Shortly before departure a group of children from the kindergarten arrived to see the ship.

By 15:00 we were underway and continuing northwards to a crossing of the Arctic Circle tomorrow.
