Isfjord – 21st Sep­tem­ber 2017

This days comes as a con­trast, showing us how it could have been much more often: grey and wet. We have been very lucky with many good days with gre­at light!

The rather dark light and wea­ther fits the deso­la­te atmo­s­phe­re of Bar­ents­burg, whe­re we spend the morning. The rus­si­an sett­le­ments have been part of Spits­ber­gen for the best part of a cen­tu­ry!

Later, we try our luck fin­ding orcas and polar bears that have recent­ly been seen in Isfjord. No luck with the wild­life, so we make a short, quiet final lan­ding not far from Kapp Wijk in Dick­son Land, to say good­bye to the arc­tic tun­dra.

A few hours later, we are along­side in Lon­gye­ar­by­en, and a gre­at trip comes to an end.

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!
