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.

The first polar bear of our trip!

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.
