Kongsfjord – 12 Sep­tem­ber 2018

We start in rather tra­di­tio­nal man­ner in Ny-Åle­sund in Kongsfjor­den. Our first and last visit to a sett­le­ment. Spits­ber­gen gives us a warm – well, chil­ly, but sun­ny and beau­ti­ful – wel­co­me. A fresh bree­ze is com­ing towards us as we go along­side. We dedi­ca­te the morning to the litt­le sett­le­ment with its histo­ry, coal mining and north pole expe­di­ti­ons, and the pre­sent: sci­ence.

Ny-Ålesund

The mast from which Amund­sen and Nobi­le laun­ched their air­s­hips.

The lar­ge gla­cier Kronebreen is temp­t­ing us in the after­noon. We can’t resist – well, why should we even try – and enjoy the stun­ning land­s­cape.

Later, we set sails again. It is pure plea­su­re to move silent­ly out of Kongsfjor­den and into the sun­set.
