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!

Gal­lery – 22nd Wahl­enberg­fjord & Erd­mann­flya – 28th June 2017

Click on thumb­nail to open an enlar­ged ver­si­on of the spe­ci­fic pho­to.

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.
