For­landsund – 30th July 2017

The wea­ther could not have been bet­ter as we stea­med into For­landsund. And while we were fol­lowing the coast­li­ne, kee­ping a look out for a place for a poten­ti­al after­noon walk, we saw a polar bear wal­king over the tun­dra bet­ween some rein­de­er! The first polar bear sigh­t­ing of this trip, alrea­dy on the second day! It was actual­ly not a very foto­ge­nic polar bear, qui­te distant and most­ly hiding behind a beach ridge, but ful­ly and clear­ly visi­ble for ever­y­bo­dy for some lovely moments. Good stuff!

And while we were alrea­dy at it regar­ding the big ani­mals, we visi­ted a litt­le group of wal­rus­ses in the evening. What a day! The hike across Erd­mann­flya (see pre­vious blog), that was also today …

Erd­mann­flya – 29th July 2017

We had spent a some­what late, but beau­ti­ful­ly calm night in Borebuk­ta, whe­re we star­ted a hike across Erd­mann­flya in the morning. Low-lying, wide tun­dra, whe­re rein­de­er are gra­zing. A beau­ti­ful, peace­ful land! It is hard to descri­be the impres­si­ons with words. How do you descri­be wide-open spaces and timeless beau­ty?

After a cou­p­le of hours, we reached Ymer­buk­ta, whe­re Hein­rich was alrea­dy wai­t­ing for us with Arc­ti­ca II. The remains of yesterday’s din­ner were very popu­lar upon arri­val!

Now we are lea­ving Isfjord and we are eager to see what the next days will bring.
