Edgeøya – 16th August 2019

The day that brought a thick layer of snow to Longyearbyen, for the first time in mid-August in 30 years, didn’t exactly start with sunshine for us on Edgeøya either. But that fitted the atmosphere well. After all, we are in the Arctic and not in the Carribean.

Instead of a hike on Edgeøya, we saw no less than three polar bears who walked along the beach.

Later, we got our hike on Edgeøya, not far from Habenichtbukta. Lovely autumn colours in the tundra in warm sunshine!

In the evening we went around Kvalpynten, a mighty mountain sticking out into the sea, into Tjuvfjord.
