Wahlenbergbreen & Erdmannflya – 28th June 2017

We stay in Isfjord for the first day, in Yoldiabukta, to be more precise. The glacier there, Wahlenbergbreen, has made a strong advance in the recent past, a so-called surge. And it turns out that Yoldiabukta is not completely ice-filled this time, as it usually is. So we are able to anchor not too far from the glacier for a while. Actually, the anchoring position that we were initially aiming for is now under the advancing glacier!

It turned out that the glacier is easy to reach. The ice is completely broken and heavily crevassed. Very impressive!

In the afternoon, we make some first impressions in the tundra in Borebukta, on Erdmannflya.
