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!
