Isfjord – 11 Sep­tem­ber 2018

It was high time to take off again, to get water under the keel and wind around the masts! We got a good bit of both as we went on board SV Anti­gua today. The­re was a fair bree­ze blowing out of Advent­da­len, the sun was shi­ning from a blue sky. Late after­noon, we left the small pier in Lon­gye­ar­by­en, and up went the sails!

Up went the sails! This time towards the west and north coast of Spits­ber­gen.

From Advent­da­len into the Isfjord.

It was a beau­ti­ful bit of real sai­ling out of Advent­fjord and through most of Isfjord. Many peop­le on board have been on Spits­ber­gen a num­ber of times befo­re, so it should real­ly be a very inte­res­ting trip!

Isfjord

Gre­at guests and atmo­s­phe­re on board!

The first evening made clear what Sep­tem­ber in Spits­ber­gen is all about: warm light from the low sun, stun­ning sce­ne­ry and even a Blue wha­le which waved with its flu­ke.

Blue whale, Isfjord

A Blue wha­le, the big­gest ani­mal on earth…

We pas­sed the wide pla­teau of Fuglef­jel­la, Grum­ant­by­en, Cole­s­buk­ta. Moun­tains and gla­ciers on the other side in the north, Alkef­jel­let under the bright sun ahead of us. Ama­zing beau­ty whe­re­ver you loo­ked!
