Kval­vå­gen – 01st July 2017

We make good use of the calm wea­ther and con­ti­nue our series of unli­kely landings with a walk on the east coast of Spits­ber­gen. We explo­re fasci­na­ting coas­tal land­scapes with bizar­re rock for­ma­ti­ons of stron­gly wea­the­red sand­stone. Dino­saurs were wal­king around here a good 100 mil­li­on years ago when the sand­stone was still soft sand. Their tracks are still well visi­ble in a cou­ple of places. Today, a polar fox fami­ly is play­ing here, enjoy­ing a mild arc­tic sum­mer day.

We con­ti­nue under sails nor­thwards in Storfjord, awai­ting the next days’ events with gre­at curiou­si­ty.
