The Arc­tic! Spits­ber­gen! Natu­re! Being out the­re! Fan­tastic … That the sum­ma­ry 🙂 and that is what it is all about here the­se days, in and around Lon­gye­ar­by­en. I have spent alrea­dy far too much time on the com­pu­ter this year, that has to wait now. Other­wi­se I could alrea­dy have writ­ten a lot here on my arc­tic tra­vel blog. But today is a day of rest, time to catch up a bit. The pre­sen­ta­ti­on seri­es “Arc­tic Wed­nes­day” wa… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

While the sun is slow­ly retur­ning to Spits­ber­gen after the polar night, the dis­cus­sion about new huts for com­mer­cial use by local tour ope­ra­tors is going on: Should it be pos­si­ble to build new huts in the field? The dis­cus­sion star­ted with the last Storting­s­mel­ding, a government poli­cy state­ment issued in 2016 that drafts an out­line of poli­tics for Sval­bard for the years to come. With the back­ground of dimi­nis­hing coal m… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

The Nor­we­gi­an public bud­get for Spits­ber­gen was posi­ti­ve in 2009, for the first time in 33 years. Main­ly tax inco­me from major com­pa­nies have con­tri­bu­t­ed to the inco­me. The mining com­pa­ny Store Nor­ske is the lar­gest tax payer (278 mil­li­on Kro­ner), fol­lo­wed by the oil and gas platt­form ser­vice com­pa­ny Seadrill Nor­ge (92 mil­lio­nen Kro­ner). In 2009, the net­to trans­fer was 33 mil­li­on Kro­ner from Spits­ber­gen to… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

We had spent a some­what late, but beau­ti­ful­ly calm night in Borebuk­ta, whe­re we star­ted a hike across Erd­mann­flya in the morning. Low-lying, wide tun­dra, whe­re rein­de­er are gra­zing. A beau­ti­ful, peace­ful land! It is hard to descri­be the impres­si­ons with words. How do you descri­be wide-open spaces and timeless beau­ty?

The win­ter sea­son is now, in ear­ly May or actual­ly soon mid May, about to come to an end, but we are cur­r­ent­ly having beau­ti­ful days, after an April that was part­ly qui­te, well, mixed. Now we having tem­pe­ra­tures below zero again – but not much, it is not too cold – and it is nice and sun­ny at times. Good rea­sons to get out the­re and enjoy the ama­zing ice- and snow land­s­cape, once again in win­ter mode. Spring is not far away a… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

For­landsund: Eidem­buk­ta

360 degree panorama

Eidem­buk­ta 1  Copy URL  pano anchor link: #Eidembukta_03Juni14_081_HDR Spitsbergen’s west coast has varied coas­tal sce­ne­ry which are clear­ly shaped by the for­ces of wind and sea. Wide bays with gra­vel beaches are inter­rup­ted by small, rocky capes. A typi­cal west coast fea­ture are the wide coas­tal plains („strand­fla­te“ in Nor­we­gi­an). The pro­cess of their for­ma­ti­on is not known in detail. Coas­tal ero­si­on tog­e­ther with rep… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

We were curious about the expe­ri­ence of the trek­king group who had spent the night with Alex in a camp some­whe­re in a hid­den val­ley in Nathorst Land. They came back in the late morning after a rather wet and win­dy night and a solid hike in For­kas­t­nings­da­len, hap­py about the expe­ri­ence and also hap­py to get back on board and warm up again with some hot cho­co­la­te!

Gene­ral: Heley­sund, Orm­ho­let and Straum­s­land Heley­sund is the nar­row strait that sepa­ra­tes the nort­hern tip of Bar­entsøya from Spits­ber­gen. The strait is dif­fi­cult to see from the distance and it was belie­ved well into the 19th cen­tu­ry that Bar­entsøya was part of Spits­ber­gen, alt­hough it was occa­sio­nal­ly seen and pro­bab­ly navi­ga­ted as ear­ly as the 17th cen­tu­ry.

Final­ly, a wea­ther win­dow has ope­ned up bet­ween all the­se low pres­su­res that have been pas­sing through here now. Accord­ing to the fore­cast, we should have some calm days ahead of us now. So let’s go down south and around the south cape! The sea was calm and the sun was shi­ning, so we didn’t want to miss the oppor­tu­ni­ty to make a lan­ding in Hyt­tevi­ka. One of the most beau­ti­ful pla­ces in Spits­ber­gen! The sce­ne­ry is stun­nin… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

Why can’t I just stay and put up my tent in this land­s­cape here, north of Isfjord? Spend a week or more? Wide tun­dra with litt­le hills and lakes, a sce­nic coast­li­ne with many litt­le rocky capes and hid­den bays. Rein­de­er so curious that it is almost dif­fi­cult to get rid of them again 🙂 Grey phalar­o­pes and Snow bun­tings, mos­ses gro­wing on ice. Can life in the arc­tic get any bet­ter?

April is showing off with the best of clear, sta­ble, cold win­ter wea­ther. A trip to Bar­ents­burg often starts with a view over Lon­gye­ar­by­en. Dri­ving along the coast is a regu­lar part of fre­quent tou­rist tours to Bar­ents­burg, but you may not like the short, but steep ascents, espe­cial­ly when the sur­face is fro­zen over, if you are not used to dri­ving a snow mobi­le.

The sad shoo­ting of a mother polar bear and her first year cub has been the mat­ter of the last news pos­ting on this web­site. A trap­per wan­ted to sca­re the polar bear away with a rub­ber bul­let, but by mista­ke he took a sharp car­tridge and fired a let­hal shot at the bear. The cub was later on the same day shot by the poli­ce, as it did not have a chan­ce for sur­vi­val on its own in the arc­tic wil­der­ness. Now the aut­ho­ri­ties in Lo… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

The next part of a polar voya­ge around the world: after the Ant­arc­tic Odyss­sey into the Ross Sea, a cou­p­le of more or less quick flights took me up from the sou­thern­most regu­lar air­port in the world in Ushua­ia to the nort­hern­most regu­lar air­port in the world in Lon­gye­ar­by­en – back home! 🙂 for a cou­p­le of weeks, it’s now snow mobi­les rather than Zodiacs and rein­de­er ins­tead of pen­gu­ins.  Copy URL  gal­le­ry anchor link:… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

The Spits­ber­gen kit­chen slats are avail­ab­le again: a small num­ber of all kinds has found its way from the work­shop in Lon­gye­ar­by­en to the spitsbergen-svalbard.com ship­ping depart­ment near the Bal­tic Sea coast in Ger­ma­ny. Spits­ber­gen kit­chen slats from Lon­gye­ar­by­en, in Lon­gye­ar­by­en. The slats are made from strong oak wood in Wolf­gang Zach’s car­pen­ters’ work­shop in Lon­gye­ar­by­en.
