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!
