The wonderful photos were taken during a family trip to Svalbard in 1987-88.
Together with his wife Mary and their children Eric and Njål experienced Ragnar Thorseth around 100 polar bears at close range during the winter, spring and summer.
What serves as a polar bear Mon stop by for a visit?
I served sandwiches with salmon and mayonnaise.
Ragnar Thor Seth claims that there was no drama surrounding the meal. Should we believe him?
I felt it not so, responds Thorseth today. In the same way that you can judge people, dogs and horses, consider situations with bears.
He says that most of the bears did not come all the way to the boat, but that they came was curious and seemed nice.
I was young and crazy
Ragnar Thorseth recall bear episode well.
It was very exciting when the polar bear stuck his head into the wheelhouse. Actually we would probably get on board the polar bear to us so that we had filmed it, "he says - but admits he would not do it again.
Polar Bear's visit was great, but this was a time when I was young and crazy. Speaking after the accident He was "adventurer Ragnar Thor Seth," "The Last Viking" - the man who did the rest of us may have dreamed about. Then came the accident that changed everything.
