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.
