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!
