This painting shows a dynamic and thriving harbour. Two hunters, wearing costumes which resemble those depicted in contemporary map illustrations, are prominently positioned on a ledge in the foreground, which roughly mirrors the shape of the rugged headland behind them. Men are pulled on sleds along the icy ground by reindeer or elk, whilst tiny figures are seen skating, conversing and at work. In the centre of the composition, a fortress and church stand atop a rocky headland, flanked by snow-capped mountains on the right.
