Hyttevika – 07th July 2019

Finally, a weather window has opened up between all these low pressures that have been passing through here now. According to the forecast, we should have some calm days ahead of us now. So let’s go down south and around the south cape!

The sea was calm and the sun was shining, so we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to make a landing in Hyttevika. One of the most beautiful places in Spitsbergen! The scenery is stunning, and it is a perl of arctic nature. Ten thousands of Little auks are breeding on the slopes, filling the place with life and noise. The tundra is green and lush and the reindeer are fat and numerous.

This is where Wanny Woldstad wintered several times from 1932, the famous female polar bear hunter from north Norway.

Now we have set coures for the south cape. The sea is calm and the sun is shining, and we are looking forward to the east coast of Spitsbergen!
