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.

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.
