The north

Karte_01

Finally we went north, there was still some wind and sea, but tolerable. In exchange, we got our first polar bear sightings in the northwest, and then, the weather was really on our side for a while. The passage of the north coast was very pleasant. It was even calm enough to go ashore on the outer point of Gråhuken, something that brought us a walk on one of Spitsbergen’s northernmost beaches and we learnt that you can find nice Devonian fossils not only in theory, but actually also in real life once you start looking in the right places. And while some were happy with frutti di mare which had been dead for some 350 million years, others went fishing and got the freshest and nicest fish you can imagine, providing some nice meals straight from the local nature.
