•  Welcome North of 60  •

There’s a land where the mountains are nameless,
And the rivers all run God knows where;
There are lives that are erring and aimless,
And deaths that just hang by a hair;
There are hardships that nobody reckons;
There are valleys unpeopled and still;
There’s a land - oh, it beckons and beckons,
And I want to go back - and I will.

About this site

This site is dedicated to the land and the people north of 60. It is meant to delight those who have been north themselves, to shed some light onto the one or other corner of the Great Northland for those who are planning to go, and to entertain those who share an interest in the north but cannot go have a look for themselves.

Indeed it appears rather presumptuous to try to capture the vast Northland – said to be “Larger Than Life” according to the Yukon Tourism board – with an apparatus the size of a cigarette pack. There is just so much the camera can not convey. But having said that: A picture still says more than a thousand words. And a panorama is more than the plain addition of its composing single images. To view a panorama you may like to use the fullscreen-button on the menue. The files behind each panorama should be large enough to moderately zoom in. Depending on your bandwidth you may have to wait a second or two for a sharp image to arrive at your screen when scrolling around.

If you have got comments or questions please send an e-mail to Carsten@northof60.de.

This website was never intended to display any ads. And the below link is not an advertisement - it is an affair of the heart for me.

Maybe budget 50 Cents or a Dollar for every mile travelled on your next trip and donate this to the fund, to help Inuit youth.
