Southeastern Spitsbergen

We got down to real busi­ness when wen came to sou­the­as­tern Spits­ber­gen. The sou­thern east coast of the main island is pret­ty much igno­red by most ships. Well, you do need good wea­ther, other­wi­se the­re is not much you can do the­re. We had good wea­ther, a good skip­per and some good ide­as and accor­din­gly some excel­lent days the­re, from spec­ta­cu­lar sce­n­ery impres­si­ons to dino­saur foot­prints.

Edgeøya offe­red excur­si­ons into past times of pomors and trap­pers and a lot of wal­rus­ses, inclu­ding some very curious ones. Small, remo­te islands often have got much more than one might think at a first glan­ce: on Halv­må­neøya, we found not only the famous trap­per hut Bjør­ne­borg, but also had a first class polar bear obser­va­ti­on.

Who knows whe­re Ryke Yse­øya­ne are? We were the­re and had a tho­rough look around. We also mana­ged to have a look at Ston­ebreen, not exact­ly the most fre­quent­ly visi­ted gla­cier in Spits­ber­gen. Tun­dra and more scenic views on Barent­søya were fol­lo­wed by the impres­si­ve curr­ents in Heley­sund.
