Krossfjord – 20th Sep­tem­ber 2017

Krossfjord is such a huge area with many side bays! As we do only have one day here, we have plan­ned the day accord­ing to a rather strict sche­du­le, just for the con­trast, against our usu­al habits. We mana­ge to have a look at the migh­ty Lil­lie­höök­breen and then to visit a Ger­man war wea­ther sta­ti­on, all during the morning. The after­noon starts in a bay fur­ther east, with rug­ged alpi­ne moun­tain sce­ne­ry and a wild gla­cier that is cas­ca­ding down over steep rock­walls. Later, we find a polar bear res­ting on the tun­dra. It seems to be qui­te tired, but it is sit­ting up occa­sio­nal­ly, so ever­y­bo­dy can get some good views. We spend some time with this obser­va­ti­on, so we skip a final lan­ding of this days. We rather enjoy the fan­tastic BBQ buf­fet that Sascha and his team have crea­ted for us, and the ama­zing evening light that the sun, which is alrea­dy under the hori­zon at this time, paints on the clouds.

Later, we lift anchor and set cour­se for Isfjord.
