Adventfjord

Fri­day, 22nd August (still) – High­lights until the last minu­te. After it had been blowing qui­te a bit off the west coast, it was nice to be back in Isfjord whe­re the water was flat calm and the sun was shi­ning again. We met a wha­le brief­ly in Advent­fjord, just off the cam­ping site. And on the shore under Hiorthfjel­let, just oppo­si­te Lon­gye­ar­by­en, the­re was even ano­t­her polar bear wal­king around, would you belie­ve it? That doesn’t hap­pen every day. Hein­rich wasn’t too hap­py as he has got a hut in that area, one of the win­dows was dama­ged so the bear may have been insi­de and in that case, it might need more than just a litt­le bit of clea­ning to make it a cosy place again.

We finish the day and the trip with a nice last evening and a good meal on board. More than 1100 nau­ti­c­la miles around Spits­ber­gen are behind us now, with about 26 lan­dings in many pos­si­ble and some impos­si­ble pla­ces. Not to men­ti­on all the land­s­capes and the wild­life we have seen from the boat. The pho­tos will tell the sto­ry, soon the­re will be a gal­le­ry online tog­e­ther with the trip report.

The­re is more to Spits­ber­gen than „just“ polar bears and wild land­s­capes, the­re are also good peop­le living here. See­ing some of them will be amongst my next tasks.

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (1): Spitz­ber­gen – vom Polar­licht bis zur Mit­ter­nachts­son­ne”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
