The race to the pole 1 …

History of Spitsbergen

Wil­liam Edward Par­ry Not all expe­di­ti­ons which went to Spits­ber­gen during the 19 cen­tu­ry, were focu­sed on sci­en­ti­fic explo­ra­ti­on of the arc­tic. Becau­se of its posi­ti­on near the pole and its rela­tively good acces­si­bi­li­ty for ships due to the warm waters of the Gulf Stream, Spits­ber­gen was used many times as a base for attempts to reach the pole. In 1827, the Eng­lish­man Wil­liam Edward Par­ry went with his crew a… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

Wea­king up with the Fjor­ten­de Juli gla­cier right in front of us was a grand way to start the day. We then went ashore in Signe­ham­na, visi­t­ing the remains of a Ger­man wea­ther sta­ti­on from the dark days of the Second World War and then tur­ning our atten­ti­on back to natu­re with rein­de­er, polar fox and views over fjord and gla­cier.

The pas­sa­ge during the night from Horn­sund up to Bellsund could have been a bit smoot­her, but it was all for­got­ten when we were gree­ted by some very curious rein­de­er in Bellsund, with a gla­cier in the back­ground! So we did later, stan­ding on a litt­le hill, enjoy­ing an ama­zing view over the fast ice in Van Mijen­fjord. Sval­bard Rein­de­er are smal­ler than their rela­ti­ves on the main­land. Later we saw some wal­rus­ses, also with… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

We were yes­ter­day blown into Eidem­buk­ta, the best place to stay as things were. It was a nice pas­sa­ge under sails. And today? The day starts with bright sunshi­ne. And almost no ripp­le on the water! Let’s go ashore! Wide-open west coast tun­dra land, a lot of snow in the low­lands, some rocky hills. And rein­de­er. And rein­de­er.

As men­tio­ned befo­re, we are star­ting on a high level. The good wea­ther stays with us, so we can make our first tun­dra expe­ri­ence in Engelskbuk­ta in bright sunshi­ne. The rein­de­ers have very small, young cal­ves, they are of cour­se shy. Snow bun­tings are sin­ging, pur­p­le sand­pi­pers are piping, ptar­mi­gans are making their noi­ses, the sun is war­ming us and life is good. A wha­ler is guar­ding the silence in his gra­ve.

The win­ter keeps showing off with cold, sta­ble wea­ther and the sun is clim­bing a tiny litt­le bit hig­her every day.

The swan song of the win­ter? Just in time for the “orni­tho­lo­gi­cal spring”, a rare tun­dra swan (Cyg­nus bewi­ckii) show­ed up near Lon­gye­ar­by­en.

Map: Advent­fjord and Lon­gye­ar­by­en. Gene­ral On this page, I am most­ly focus­sing on Advent­fjord rather than on the sett­le­ment of Lon­gye­ar­by­en its­elf.
