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!

Advent­da­len

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.
