Bar­ents­burg – 16th April, 2016

April is showing off with the best of clear, sta­ble, cold win­ter wea­ther. A trip to Bar­ents­burg often starts with a view over Lon­gye­ar­by­en. Dri­ving along the coast is a regu­lar part of fre­quent tou­rist tours to Bar­ents­burg, but you may not like the short, but steep ascents, espe­cial­ly when the sur­face is fro­zen over, if you are not used to dri­ving a snow mobi­le.

Who would have expec­ted to see a wal­rus on a win­ter trip to Bar­ents­burg? We also saw Rein­de­er and even White wha­les (Belugas), but too far away to take pho­tos.

Gal­le­ry – Bar­ents­burg – 16th April, 2016

Click on thumb­nail to open an enlar­ged ver­si­on of the spe­ci­fic pho­to.

Bar­ents­burg its­elf loo­ks part­ly like a big arc­tic ver­si­on of Lego­land after several years of refur­bish­ment. The choice of colours of some of the buil­dings might be a mat­ter of deba­te, but others are real­ly beau­ti­ful. Lenin is medi­ta­ting as always, the view direc­ted into the distance. Impos­si­ble to say what he would say about the colours.

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!
