Freemansund – 22 July 2018

An overnight passage brought us to Freemansund, where we spent the morning on Edgeøya in a wide tundra landscape with well-developed phenomena such as ice wedges and ancient beach ridges. The species diversity of the tundra is as impressive as the amount of driftwood on the coast, and unfortunately also the amount of plastic trash on the beach. At least, there was significantly less of the latter left after our visit than there had been before.

We spent an extremely pleasant afternoon together with several thousand kittiwakes and a family of polar foxes.
