From Smeerenburg to Hamiltonbukta – 13 September 2018

A lovely bit of sailing takes us up to Smeerenburgfjord during the night. Smeerenburg gives us a friendly welcome with fine landing conditions. Walrusses, Dutch 17th century whaling, polar foxes and the beautiful scenery make the morning.

As we continue further eastwards, we see the first polar bear of the trip. Quite distant, but well visible for everybody.

In Hamiltonbukta, we enjoy the timeless beauty and silence of the Arctic for a while, surrounded by stunning mountains and glaciers. So, another good day in the Arctic! We are curious what tomorrow may bring, as we set course to the northeast.
