For­landsund: Her­man­senøya & Daud­mann­søy­ra – 19 Sep­tem­ber 2018

Yet ano­t­her beau­ti­ful, calm, sun­ny day! One can only won­der and enjoy.

The litt­le island of Her­man­senøya is lying in the midd­le of For­landsund. Whe­re­ver the eye wan­ders the­re is beau­ty, both far away, such as the moun­tains and gla­ciers of Spits­ber­gen and Prins Karls For­land, and clo­ser, from the rug­ged coas­tal rocks to the litt­le mira­cles that frost and ice crea­te in the tun­dra.

In the after­noon we con­ti­nued sou­thwards along the west coast of Spits­ber­gen. One of the most beau­ti­ful bits of land­s­cape if you ask me! It’s not so much the post­card beau­ty, like ice­bergs and gla­ciers, that many asso­cia­te with the Arc­tic, it’s more sub­t­le. A wide plain with a very rocky, immen­se­ly beau­ti­ful coast­li­ne and very rich tun­dra with ple­nty of rein­de­er. What a beau­ti­ful part of the pla­net! And we are lucky to be able to spend some time here, this area is pret­ty expo­sed.
