Forlandsund, Ny-Ålesund

The wind that had bothered us yesterday evening served us well later during the night and carried us far north, so we woke up with walrusses just around the corner and of course we made good use of the opportunity ☺

Ny-Ålesund is of course a classic on most Spitsbergen voyages, but on this particular trip, it is a rather unexpected geographical highlight in the truest sense of the world. Who would have thought just a few days ago that we would make it this far north? But here we were, and we could even enjoy brilliant sunshine – a rare thing on the west coast of Spitsbergen – and then, finally, a calm night in the harbour. Something we had well deserved, as we all agreed!
