St. Jonsfjord – 02nd July 2019

The main point in out plan­ning is still to avoid the are­as of strong winds that are cur­r­ent­ly raging in several parts of Spits­ber­gen. The low pres­su­res are pas­sing through one by one, without a break.

But we are doing pret­ty well so far. Today, this brings us to St. Jonsfjord, which turns out to be the place to be for today. The first hike yiel­ds beau­ti­ful views on moun­tains, gla­ciers and the fjord, with ple­nty of beau­ti­ful flowers.

Later, we pass a lar­ge, qui­te acti­ve gla­cier and many small ice­bergs. Coin­ci­dence takes us then to a place whe­re a retrea­ting gla­cier has crea­ted a fasci­na­ting lagoon land­s­cape. A strong tidal cur­rent rus­hes through the cur­ved chan­nel that con­nects the lagoon and the fjord. 288 metres alti­tu­de pro­vi­de a stun­ning pan­ora­ma over the who­le fjord area.

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (3): Die Bären­in­sel und Jan May­en”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
