Daud­manns­od­den-Ymer­buk­ta – 11th July 2019

The last day – time is fly­ing! We have made good speed and arri­ved outer Isfjord in the ear­ly mor­ning, so we con­tin­ued a few miles to the north, into For­lands­und (how many times did we sail through For­lands­und on this trip ..?). We went ashore in one of the beau­tiful bays on Spitsbergen’s west coast, and after a full day at sea, it was good to get some tun­dra under our rub­ber boots again! Next to all the beau­tiful flowers and wild­life of the tun­dra, we found remains of a dead sperm wha­le on the beach and a lepi­du­rus gla­cia­lis (no idea about the com­mon name) in a litt­le lake.

Later, we went ashore once again, then in Ymer­buk­ta. Some of us wal­ked along the shore towards the gla­cier and others crossed the huge morai­ne to enjoy silent views of the arc­tic natu­re. Time to say good­bye – for this time. It was gre­at, big thanks to all of you who were part of it!
