St. Jons­fjord – 10th August 2021

For­lands­und tur­ned out to be fog­gy and a bit win­dy today, so we deci­ded to have a look at St. Jons­fjord. Talk about right place and right time! Full suns­hi­ne on the beau­tiful gla­cier sce­n­ery in the inner part of the fjord. Many ber­gy bits on the water from the 2 pret­ty acti­ve gla­ciers in the area. One of them is curr­ent­ly advan­cing; the posi­ti­on that we had rea­ched in 2019 is cover­ed by the gla­cier now. The other, neigh­bou­ring one is, howe­ver, retrea­ting, as most of Spitsbergen’s gla­ciers the­se days.

We mar­vel­led at this stun­ning sce­n­ery from all per­spec­ti­ves we could think of: from a per­fect­ly pla­ced moun­tain ridge, from sea level and from a litt­le island that has only very recent­ly emer­ged from the gla­cier. Bet not too many peo­p­le had been the­re befo­re us!
