Southwestern Spitsbergen

The idea of going south first was to give the ice in the far north some more time to loo­se up a litt­le bit. The first evening, just meant to get us a few miles away from Lon­gye­ar­by­en, was alrea­dy so nice that some of us took the first litt­le walk under the mid­ni­ght sun sen­su stric­tu. In Bellsund, some very small islands and a good hike through hid­den inland val­leys from Van Mijen­fjord to Van Keu­len­fjord gave us some unf­or­gett­able memo­ries.

In the 1930s, Wan­ny Wold­stad had her litt­le arc­tic para­di­se in Hyt­tevi­ka, north of Hor­sund. Horn­sund its­elf wasn’t so friend­ly that day, so it was an easy decisi­on to turn out again. Unf­or­gett­able how Hein­rich navi­ga­ted Arc­ti­ca II through Mesund at the south cape. Not for big­ger ships!

The sou­thern west coast.
