The west


Back to the west – that felt good, having all the ice, all these miles and all the wind behind us now. The ice was actually stretching all the way even north of Hornsund.

In Bellsund, we went „back to business“ again, enjoying views from a mountain ridge and the colours of the rich west coast tundra, which suddenly appeared to be a very friendly, warm world, after all the ice and weather in the east.

Not too long before we were back in Isfjord. Incredible how time is passing by on such a trip, the days are just flying, and after another nice hike along little cliff coasts and over the wide tundra of Erdmannflya, the next and last landfall had to be Longyearbyen.
