Isfjord – 27 July 2018

Bar­ents­burg gave us much more of a friend­ly wel­co­me than we had fea­red last night: not only had the wea­ther clea­red up, but a polar fox came to the har­bour during bre­ak­fast to say hel­lo!

Barentsburg

The morning walk through the Rus­si­an sett­le­ment brought not just the visu­al con­trasts that one is safe to expect here, but also a wealth of know­ledge regar­ding 20th cen­tu­ry histo­ry and poli­tics of Spits­ber­gen.

The after­noon star­ted with a lot of wind and some gre­at sai­ling across Isfjord, befo­re we found a place in Borebuk­ta shel­te­red enough to explo­re a bit of morai­ne and tun­dra land­s­cape. In the evening, we brought out some cheers on this gre­at trip which was about to come to an end soon.
