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.
