Recher­chefjord – Barents­burg – Lon­gye­ar­by­en – 20th/21th August 2019

After a late arri­val in Recher­chefjord and a cou­ple of hours res­t­ing time, we move out to explo­re the scenic land­scape. A group of hikers grabs the cram­pons and walk up the gla­cier Renard­breen. The fri­ends of the tun­dra make a walk along the coast and to the green tun­dra area, roun­ded off with a Zodiac tour into the lagoon of Recher­che­breen, whe­re small ice­bergs are drif­ting with the tidal cur­rent.

In the after­noon, we sail north along the west coast, to Isfjord. Soon the cir­cle is about to clo­se.

We reach Grønfjord and Barents­burg after a cou­ple of bum­py miles in the ent­rance of Isfjord and cele­bra­te our first mee­ting with civi­li­sa­ti­on with a beer in the Red Bear, the bar of the bre­wery. We save the com­pre­hen­si­ve town walk for the next day, when we are accom­pa­nied by the sun again :-;

The final miles, calm and sun­ny, of this ama­zing voya­ge take us along Coles­buk­ta, Gru­mant­by­en and Fuglef­jel­la, befo­re we go along­side in Lon­gye­ar­by­en. An unfor­gettable voya­ge is coming to an end. We round it off with a gui­ded histo­ry walk in Lon­gye­ar­by­en and a nice evening on board.

Big thanks to all of you who were on board Arc­ti­ca II on this tour for a gre­at and inte­res­t­ing trip with good spi­rits all the way through!
