Dick­son­fjord – 03rd July 2019

We have moved into some of the inner bran­ches of Isfjord to enjoy some fan­tastic sce­ne­ry alt­hough the wea­ther is actual­ly qui­te grey. Still, it is beau­ti­ful. And we meet a pod of Belugas in red­dish meltwa­ter.

Kapp Smith was one of the pla­ces whe­re the age of sys­te­ma­tic sci­ence and explo­ra­ti­on began in Spits­ber­gen: this is whe­re the Nor­we­gi­an pho­to­gram­metric expe­di­ti­on of 1936 was based. Air­planes rather than dog sled­ges. Today, turn­stones and arc­tic terns live on the beau­ti­ful­ly colour­ful tun­dra.

Many of us hike from Dick­son­fjord to Ekmanfjord, fol­lowing a colour­ful car­pet of various flowers. The rocks are full of fos­sils, others con­sist of white anhy­dri­te („gypsym“). Pink-foo­ted geese are bree­ding in flat tun­dra are­as, and red-throated divers are sit­ting on a small lake.

We spend a beau­ti­ful­ly calm night at anchor, while the clouds are com­ing down lower and lower.
