Around Spitsbergen on board SY Arctica II, 04-22 August, 2014

»Advanced Spitsbergen«

We spent 18 days sai­ling around Spits­ber­gen with Arc­ti­ca II with 12 peop­le on board, inclu­ding skipper/owner Hein­rich Eggen­fell­ner from Lon­gye­ar­by­en, Rolf Stan­ge and 10 guests, all Ger­man spea­king (same for future edi­ti­ons of this trip). As the tit­le “advan­ced Spits­ber­gen” indi­ca­tes, we put our focus on less well known, more exco­tic pla­ces and lon­ger hikes, igno­ring, to some degree, well-known sites which are almost a must-see on most trips, such as Kongsfjord/Ny Åle­sund, Lief­defjord, Horn­sund (we made a very brief visit the­re only) … just a few examp­les. This gave us enough time to visit pla­ces like Ryke Yse­øya­ne, Lady Fran­klin­sund, Bren­ne­v­insfjord and others, which are by far more “exo­tic”. And we did a num­ber of real­ly good hikes, taking off whe­re we most­ly have to stop with, say, the “long hike group” on other ships.

“Advan­ced Spits­ber­gen” was accord­in­gly an inten­se and deman­ding trip for all invol­ved, but it gave us all an incredi­ble expe­ri­ence. Expec­ted­ly, Arc­ti­ca II tur­ned out to be the ide­al boat for this. Even without cook and ser­vice team, our life on board was cer­tain­ly not bad at all. And the­re is a not so litt­le dif­fe­rence in hiking befo­re din­ner­ti­me or having din­ner after the hike. Fin­ding out along the way how much time it actual­ly takes gives much more space to explo­re and to get lost (mental­ly!) in the land­s­cape. The hike went until late night? No pro­blem, just have some food at mid­ni­ght. Bre­ak­fast can also be half an hour later. This requi­res a good bit of fle­xi­bi­li­ty, which we had and we will have it again in 2015.
