MS Nordstjernen cruise review
The Richardlaguna is home to a large summer colony of male
walruses. Unlike Moffen, site of our earlier walrus-watching, the Richard
Lagoon was open to shore landings. The PolarCirkel boats dropped us off a good
distance from the walruses, and we tiptoed through the pebbles until we were
within picture-taking distance.
Walruses normally aren't dangerous on land, but the guides
insisted that we keep quiet and not disturb the animals during their naps.
