Northwest Spitsbergen – 04 August 2018

The northwest of Spitsbergen does not exactly encourage hiking with its rocky and steep terrain and the glacier-covered inland. But there are some opportunities, and we grabbed one to venture into this world of ice and steep rocks.

Later on Danskøya, we were greeted by harbour seals. Back to a world full of life after the rugged high-alpine landscape earlier today!

This altogether had made the day already more than complete, but Pål’s sharp eyes discoved a polar bear family on a steep, rock shore and they gave us about half an hour of unforgettable observations! Lovely to see the 3 animals, all of them healthy and in good shape!
