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 …

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (1): Spitz­ber­gen – vom Polar­licht bis zur Mit­ter­nachts­son­ne”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
