Ginev­ra­bot­nen – 09th July 2019

A long stretch took us up to Ginev­ra­bot­nen last night. This is the nor­t­hern­most part of Storfjord, north of Barent­søya. The­re is still quite a bit of drift ice in this area. We have arri­ved in the high arc­tic! The wea­ther is calm and clear, it is over­cast, but beau­tiful. Almost a bit melan­cho­lic. Very fit­ting for this high arc­tic envi­ron­ment.

Gal­lery – Ginev­ra­bot­nen – 09th July 2019

Click on thumb­nail to open an enlar­ged ver­si­on of the spe­ci­fic pho­to.

We get to do a love­ly Zodiac crui­se in the ice, but later, the clouds come down and turn into fog. Then the­re comes wind on top of it. Altog­e­ther, it is a rather unp­lea­sant com­bi­na­ti­on. We have to scrap a landing on Barent­søya which we had plan­ned ori­gi­nal­ly.

A visit to the Würz­bur­ger Hut at Sundneset/Barentsøya can be done online here.
