Heley­sund – 13 August 2018

A dream day in one of the most beau­ti­ful cor­ners of Spits­ber­gen, in the eas­tern­most part of the main island. The­re is this lovely bay in Heley­sund whe­re you can anchor per­fect­ly well even if it is blowing a bit, like last night.

Today morning it was calm again, and sun­ny. We pre­pa­red some ther­mos bot­t­les and a bit of food and took off, for a long hike on the tun­dra. Some­ti­mes wet, some­ti­mes dry, some­timey rocky, always rich in details, varied, beau­ti­ful. Gre­at views of Heley­sund and Straum­s­land, Storfjord and Bar­entsøya. Curious rein­de­er and a rare Sabine’s gull. A stun­ning coast­li­ne with huge rock colum­ns, below them green, lush tun­dra with well-deve­lo­ped ice wed­ges. Long rests in the sun, enjoy­ing the views. What else could you ask for?

Now we are stea­ming south in Storfjord. The sun is shi­ning, and we have got gre­at views of Bar­entsøya and Spits­ber­gen.
