Sørkapp Land – 30th June 2017

Spitsbergen’s south cape is always good for trouble. Even nicer to round it in calm conditions, against expectations. And to find the sea so calm next morning that it brings the rare opportunity to land at the south cape! A few miles east of the actual southernmost point, Antigua is able to get close enough to go ashore. It is still more than far enough from the shore. But a great landscape, high arctic tundra, with a rugged mountain in the background. A rocky shoreline with interesting structures, old whalebones … everything. And it is a rarely seen landscape. How often is someone getting here?

The weather gets even more beautiful in the afternoon. We are blessed to see Isbukta in its full scenic splendor, under a bright sun and a blue sky. Unforgettably beautiful!
