New Island

After only a few hours more, we arrive close to the sandy beaches of New Island. Passengers get their rides in the Polar Cirkel Boats and start walking across the grassy plains of New Island, at the end of which the steep cove of the blue-eyed shags opens up to our feet. Shags, Albatross, and Rockhoppers as far as the eye can see, while deep down below the green sea sends heavy waves on the ragged shore. A wind-torn paradise!
