Bar­ents­burg – 04/05 March 2015

04/05 March 2015 – Over­night visit to Bar­ents­burg. The fresh­ly reno­va­ted hotel now offers a neat stan­dard, from remar­kab­le rooms (some of them do have a bath tub!), nice food (à la car­te) to fast WLAN. At the same time, this means that it has lost some of its ori­gi­nal charme.

Of cour­se this is pro­bab­ly not what you main­ly come for when you visit the arc­tic, but it may be good to know that it is abso­lute­ly save to plan a trip to Bar­ents­burg as an over­night 🙂 it has not always been like that. And from Bar­ents­burg the­re is a good choice of inte­res­ting pla­ces to see in reach, espe­cial­ly if you are tra­vel­ling by snow mobi­le, next to the Rus­si­an sett­le­ment its­elf. They even offer cour­ses in Rus­si­an han­di­c­rafts the­re the­se days! I have to admit that I have not done that.

The way back went in den­se snow­fall. It was neit­her cold nor win­dy, but the snow was fal­ling den­se­ly enough to make dri­ving a bit unplea­sant and cer­tain­ly qui­te slow. We enjoy­ed the full pro­gram­me, from snow mobi­les fal­ling on the side on slo­pes cove­r­ed with deep, snoft fresh snow to snow mobi­les dig­ging them­sel­ves in wit­hin seconds in such pla­ces. Gre­at fun … :-/

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 (3): Die Bären­in­sel und Jan May­en”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
