For­landsund – 09th August 2021

It is still Mon­day, 09 August, and the day is not over yet. After a short stretch with fog and swell, For­landsund wel­co­mes us with sunshi­ne and dozens of fin wha­les!

Later in the evening, at Prins Karls For­land, the fog has caught up again with us. Nevertheless, we take the oppor­tu­ni­ty for a late evening mee­ting with a herd of wal­rus.

Erd­mann­flya, Ymer­buk­ta – 09th August 2021

The sun was hiding behind a low cloud lay­er, but calm wea­ther and good visi­bi­li­ty temp­ted us to hike across Erd­mann­flya, a wide tun­dra plain with many rein­de­er, various birds, lakes, wet­lands and low rocky rid­ges with lovely views. The cros­sing took a lar­ge part of the day and was com­ple­ted with clo­se-up views of Esmark­breen from the ship. Now ever­ything around us has disap­peared in the fog as we lea­ve Isfjord. Soon we will turn nor­thwards.
