A polar bear being obser­ved some weeks ago in Nort­hern Spits­ber­gen with a thin nylon rope around its neck was now loca­ted and freed from the noo­se by mem­bers of the Nor­we­gi­an Polar Insti­tu­te. The case illus­tra­tes the dan­ger for arc­tic wild­life occur­ring by the incre­a­sing amount of plastic was­te floa­ting in the sea and being was­hed ashore. It was in the end of June as the polar bear was seen and pho­to­gra­phed for the first… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

We spent the last day in Nordfjord, name­ly in one of its nort­hern bran­ches cal­led Ekmanfjord. Ama­zing how the land­s­capes of Spits­ber­gen could still sur­pri­se and ama­ze us after a trip that felt like mon­ths long. The pro­tru­ding cliffs of the moun­tains remind of gothic cathe­drals. Tun­dra on Blo­mes­let­ta. A walk and a long hike, accord­ing to choice, took us across a wide-open tun­dra area with some hills and lakes, whe­re we enjo… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

Pan­ora­mas from the aban­do­ned Rus­si­an mining sett­le­ment of Pyra­mi­den are fur­ther down on this site.

This is the ama­zing view from its nor­the­as­tern cor­ner. In the west, you can see Bill­efjord and, if you look care­ful­ly, the Rus­si­an sett­le­ment Py… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

The wea­ther could not have been bet­ter as we stea­med into For­landsund. And while we were fol­lowing the coast­li­ne, kee­ping a look out for a place for a poten­ti­al after­noon walk, we saw a polar bear wal­king over the tun­dra bet­ween some rein­de­er! The first polar bear sigh­t­ing of this trip, alrea­dy on the second day! It was actual­ly not a very foto­ge­nic polar bear, qui­te distant and most­ly hiding behind a beach ridge, but ful… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

Horn­sund can be nas­ty, and it can be friend­ly and beau­ti­ful. Today, it was won­der­ful. Silent, clear wea­ther, calm water with mir­ror images of the sur­roun­ding moun­tains. And the­re are some beau­ti­ful moun­tains arran­ged at the shores of this fjord. Cha­rac­ter­ful peaks that are uni­que, you will always reco­gni­ze them on a pho­to once you have seen them.

Back in Isfjord, and the lights are going on. A sun­set, that is moving more and more towards noon, is thro­wing a soft pin­kish-red light onto the snow-cove­r­ed moun­tain tops. The tun­dra is fro­zen, the moss beds, soft and wet just a short while ago, are hard as con­cre­te. A few small rivu­lets are still run­ning under an icy cover, just a few spots of run­ning water are still expo­sed. Soon, they will also turn into ice, and not­hing will m… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

Alrea­dy the last day of this trip. Unbe­liev­a­ble how quick­ly more than 1000 miles go by. The fine tun­dra on Dia­ba­sod­den – just weeks ago the sce­ne of a memo­r­able polar bear encoun­ter – is home to rather curious rein­de­er who approach us repeated­ly. That is how it should be, not the other way around Bar­na­cle geese and Brünich’s guil­lemots are sit­ting on the steep basalt cliffs, a ptar­mi­gan is on loo­kout on a rock, some­whe­re… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

After a disap­poin­ting ear­ly sea­son, the Eas­ter wee­kend brought dream con­di­ti­ons in Spits­ber­gen: good ter­rain con­di­ti­ons for tours and bright sunshi­ne. All tho­se who went out on tours by snow mobi­le, ski or dog sledge could enjoy won­der­ful days in a friend­ly win­ter arc­tic. Tra­di­tio­nal­ly, both locals and tou­rists are out in the­se days in con­si­derable num­bers. Nevertheless, it was a calm wee­kend for the emer­gen­cy s… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

30th June – 17th July, 2015

Expec­ta­ti­ons are natu­ral­ly high when you spend 18 days tra­vel­ling Spits­ber­gen, but what the­se 18 days altog­e­ther had to offer excee­ded most, if not all, expec­ta­ti­ons. Regard­less if you think of the big ani­mals, the polar bears, wal­rus­ses and wha­les, all the other wild­life, birdcliffs, rein­de­er and polar fox, geese, ducks and other tun­dra dwel­lers, the sce­ne­ry with all its dif­fe­rent facets.

28th/29th July 2016 – The thin lay­er of fog that had cast such magi­cal light effects over Horn­sund yes­ter­day had grown over night into a solid, low lying cloud cover, making the world appe­ar much more grey than it had been yes­ter­day. But both the litt­le impres­si­ons of the colour­ful tun­dra as the views from ele­va­tions are as beau­ti­ful as we had been hoping for. We go sepa­ra­te ways at least for a while in the after­noon.

The day begins as beau­ti­ful­ly as the last one ends. Kongsfjord in morning light, belts of drif­ting gla­cier ice in the sun, you have to have seen that. Kings Bay has got its name for good rea­son. We are wel­co­med by a big rein­de­er on the shore. Tun­dra and big erra­tic boul­ders, gla­cier-polis­hed marb­le, views over wide gla­ciers and ice caps, crow­ned by the Tre Kro­ner. A roy­al sce­ne­ry.

Yes, good wea­ther, that’s what we want and what we need. The wind had lar­ge­ly cal­med down and even the sun was com­ing out at times. So on we went, with sand­wi­ches and ther­mos bot­t­les, into the tun­dra and up the moun­tains. Gre­at views of the land­s­cape near and far, bizar­re shapes of wea­the­ring snow on the banks of litt­le rivers, ptar­mi­gans and rein­de­er, flowers and erra­tic boul­ders, lar­ge val­leys with gla­ciers and morai… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

Febru­a­ry can be a beau­ti­ful mon­th in Spits­ber­gen. Espe­cial­ly if it is nice and cold and not as bat­te­red by cli­ma­te chan­ge as last year, when warm air incur­si­ons brought several peri­ods of thawing and rain. This year, we have had good frost for most of the time in Febru­a­ry. Cold, clear wea­ther and not too much wind. The sun is still lar­ge­ly behind the hori­zon and hid­den by moun­tains, but the moun­tain tops star­ted glowing… Con­ti­nue rea­ding
