Nordfjord – 28 July 2018

We spent the last day in Nordfjord, name­ly in one of its nort­hern bran­ches cal­led Ekmanfjord. Ama­zing how the land­s­capes of Spits­ber­gen could still sur­pri­se and ama­ze us after a trip that felt like mon­ths long. The pro­tru­ding cliffs of the moun­tains remind of gothic cathe­drals.


Tun­dra on Blo­mes­let­ta.

A walk and a long hike, accord­ing to choice, took us across a wide-open tun­dra area with some hills and lakes, whe­re we enjoy­ed various flowers, birds, the colours of the tun­dra and all the details that the arc­tic has to offer.

Wahlen­berg­breen is a very acti­ve gla­cier and the place that Rolf cho­se for our fare­well to Spits­ber­gen. We moved silent­ly bet­ween many litt­le ice­bergs and ber­gy bits with the Zodiacs to enjoy and say good­bye to the Arc­tic – for this time.
