Forlandsund – 29th May, 2017

You need calm weather for a landing on the coastal flats on the west coast. The weather is calm during the morning, so the rocky shallows near the coast are no problem and we take the opportunity to go ashore in one of the bays in Forlandsund, north of Isfjord. The wide-open coastal plains with their varied shoreliens and gently rolling hills are amongst my absolute favourites of Spitsbergen’s many different landscape types!

In the afternoon, the focus is not the beauty of the landscape, but the beauty of the wildlife. „Beauty“ is, of course, a relative term. A good encounter with walrusses is one of the most amazing wildlife experiences that you can have in the arctic!
