Horn­sund – 28th/29th May 2016

28th/29th May 2016 – Final­ly Spits­ber­gen is rai­sing from the sea ahead of us, and we are cer­tain­ly all loo­king for­ward to shel­te­red waters after the cros­sing. The swell is actual­ly reaching a bit into Horn­sund, making the first ancho­ra­ge a bit lively.

Gal­le­ry Horn­sund – 28th/29th May 2016

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

The first lan­ding brings gre­at views of the near­by gla­cier and of the migh­ty surf poun­ding on the outer shore of our litt­le pen­in­su­la. Horn­sund­tind is still hiding in clouds, but not for long any­mo­re. After a cou­p­le of hours, Bau­ta­en and Horn­sund­tind are both free of clouds, rising majes­ti­cal­ly into the blue sky. We enjoy the pan­ora­ma of gla­ciers, ice and moun­tains for ano­t­her day. Alt­hough it is obvious­ly far less ice than it should be. No drif­ti­ce any­whe­re near, only ice­bergs from the local gla­ciers. Hard­ly any trace of fast ice, only some lose, drif­ting, wea­the­ring floes. Sad.
