Bockfjord – 16 July 2018

It is gre­at to be out for a full, long day in Spitsbergen’s beau­ti­ful natu­re. And the warm springs far inland in Bockfjord are fasci­na­ting. A gre­at desti­na­ti­on for a long hike! We spend hours get­ting the­re, hiking across tun­dra with ple­nty of flowers and a river plain that loo­ks like kind of a wad­den sea. After an exten­ded rest with some food, we have soon reached the fiel­ds with the sin­ter ter­races. Natu­re has inde­ed crea­ted some very impres­si­ve pie­ces of art here! All this comes with a stun­ning back­ground: a migh­ty wall of dark-red moun­tains, some huge morai­nes and rug­ged moun­tains.



We enjoy the sce­ne­ry, the wea­ther, the hike and life in gene­ral for a full day. It is a timeless place. We are back on board after 9 hours.



Of cour­se the­re was also the opti­on for walks wit­hin a „nor­mal“ sca­le. The­re are also warm springs clo­se to the shore, and ano­t­her walk went to a near­by gla­cier.

The wea­ther fore­cast is pro­mi­sing for the far north, so we set cour­se nor­the­ast in the evening.

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!
