Around Jan May­en – 22nd June 2016

We can’t igno­re it any­mo­re, today is the day to put Base­camp down and to say good­bye to Jan May­en. At least, we have got good wea­ther, which makes ever­ything much simp­ler and more plea­sant. Wea­ther rules ever­ything here!

And we still have got time to sail around Jan May­en. The migh­ty Bee­ren­berg is gree­ting us several times by showing its white crown through holes in the clouds, then we pass Weyprecht­breen and the other gla­ciers which are reaching the shore on the nort­hern side. Qui­te impres­si­ve, as they come kree­ping down the slo­pes of Bee­ren­berg, wild­ly crev­as­sed, fro­zen rivers of bro­ken blocks of ice.

At the nort­hern tip, we pass by the youn­gest part of Jan May­en, which came into exi­s­tance during a vol­ca­nic erup­ti­on in 1970. On the east coast, more gla­ciers reach the sea, and steep coas­tal cliffs allow rare views of the insi­de of a vol­ca­no. Then Eggøya is com­ing into view, and over the next cou­p­le of hours, Mid and Sør Jan are pas­sing by, whe­re we could make so many memo­r­able expe­ri­en­ces in recent days, the sta­ti­on, Kapp Wien …
