Beerenberg - arctic, volcanic, exotic

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A photographic story about a journey to Jan Mayen, a Norwegian island in the Arctic sea at 71║N latitude,
for climbing Beerenberg, the worlds northernmost volcano above sea level,
a still active stratovolcano, 2277 meters high.
Our goal was to encircle the whole crater rim, an enterprise no one had ever done before...
The journey took place 13-24.06.2008, where 10 Norwegians and 2 Icelanders participated.
A big thanks to Runar and Sigur­ur at Borea Adventures for helping us to safely make our dream come true!
Have a look, feel free to take a shortcut to this remote and remarkable place!
