Aava­t­s­mark­breen – Ny-Åle­sund – 06. August 2019

We keep moving north in For­landsund and go ashore to make a hike to a huge gla­cier cal­led Aava­t­s­mark­breen. Here we find our­sel­ves in a bar­ren ice-age land­s­cape with many polar bear tracks in the sand, pie­ces of gla­cier ice on the shore, meltwa­ter rivers that we need to walk through and final­ly the big gla­cier with its impres­si­ve cal­ving front. Tor­ren­ti­al meltwa­ter rivers are cas­ca­ding down over rocks next to the gla­cier. A very impres­si­ve, beau­ti­ful land­s­cape!

The onwards jour­ney through For­landsund is a bit bum­py – again, the wea­ther fore­cast is not real­ly impres­si­ve – until we turn into Kongsfjord a cou­p­le of hours later.

In the evening, as we make a walk trough Ny-Åle­sund, Spitsbergen’s nort­hern­most sett­le­ment, the sun comes out again and cas­ts beau­ti­ful evening light over the stun­ning moun­tain and gla­cier sce­ne­ry.
