Barentsburg & Grønfjordfjellet – 13th August 2017

The passage last night up to Isfjord was almost surprisingly calm. It was definitely a good idea to wait the weather out in Fridtjovhamna for a couple of hours. Which is not a bad thing anyway, considering the scenery there.

In Barentsburg, we spent the morning with some sightseeing and learning about Spitsbergen 20th century history and politics. We also got used to the usual dangers of civilisation again, car traffic and things like that. So most of us decided to spend the afternoon in the arctic nature again, doing a bit of a sportive hike up the mountains to gain a great scenic view over Grønfjord.
