The church steps

We do much appreciate the work of our gardening-team which is working hard in tidying and planting flowers around in town.

Harlequin ducks

The harlequin duck (Histrionicus histrionicus) takes its name from a colourfully dressed character in Commedia dell'arte.

Spring cleaning

Great weather (+18°C) to clean the duck-pond and the surrounding area and to make the flowerbeds ready for the summer flowers.


The beauty of the springtime, courtship rituals, nest building, mating, nesting and the first eggs.

A lot of light

The sunrise is at approx 4.30 AM and sunset at 10.00 PM. This means 16.5 hours of daylight and 4 hours of twilight

The Evening Glow

The glow of the sunset and the soft twilight colors in the sky can be quite awesome - these paddlers took a tour on the fjord last night around 23.00.

The first day of summer

This day has its root in the Old Norse calendar used by Iceland’s settlers. That calendar only had two seasons: summer and winter.


It is spring. Most of the snow in town has melted, migrating birds have arrived in big numbers and flowers are starting to bloom both inside and outside in the botanical garden
