Isfjord – 31 July 2018

It was just a short stop in Longyearbyen to get used to civilisation and road traffic again, be it with engines or feathers, and then we took off again into the big, wide, open, arctic world. This time with Arctica II. Advanced Spitsbergen! Pål Remen had already been our skipper in 2015, he has spent the last winter with his partner on the trapper station at Austfjordneset. Monika Hiller completes the team as a guide, and we are joined by 9 fellow explorers, so we are ready to go!

We have a dream start in Isfjorden, with bright sunshine, the water lying like a mirror, and a wide panoramic view. The clouds over Trygghamna looked quite dramatic, but that was the only dramatic thing about the weather even there. A polar bear was swimming across the fjord, the first one for us in this trip, only a few hours after leaving Longyearbyen! We didn’t really get to see him at closer distance, but nevertheless – great!

It was quite foggy in Forlandsund, so most of us had gone to bad when the anchor fell long after midnight.
