Barents­burg & Ymer­buk­ta – 01st June 2016

So that was May, and now it is alre­a­dy June. But it looks like ear­ly July. The­re is not too much snow left, wide tun­dra are­as are alre­a­dy free of snow, espe­ci­al­ly on the west coast. The ice chart looks like late sum­mer.

And out­side it looks like Irkutsk or some­thing that way. That is, of cour­se, Barents­burg. What else!

Barents­burg is an impres­si­ve expe­ri­ence, as always. You just have to have seen it. And what real­ly blew me away was the hot cho­co­la­te. Serious­ly! By far the best hot cho­co­la­te in Spits­ber­gen. It even lea­ves Café Frue­ne in Lon­gye­ar­by­en far behind 🙂

We spend the ear­ly after­noon crui­sing seve­ral bays, loo­king for sce­n­ery (gre­at land­scape ever­y­whe­re) and polar bears (none), befo­re we cele­bra­te the trip duly. It has been – and still is – gre­at, even wit­hout a polar bear sight­ing.
