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!
