Gallery 3: Liefdefjord

We con­tin­ued into Lief­defjord, whe­re we saw our first polar bear on a small island, a slee­py bear (most likely a fema­le), but nevert­hel­ess it gave us squite some exci­te­ment wit­hout actual­ly taking much noti­ce of us.

The cent­re of our atten­ti­on in Lief­defjord was Mona­co­reen. The gla­cier hikers went up onto the ice with ropes and cram­pons, while tho­se who pre­fer­red to remain on solid ground or liquid water went out with the Zodiac to visit the ice­bergs and the cal­ving gla­cier front. This tur­ned out to be the exten­ded ver­si­on (director’s cut!) of a gla­cier crui­se, and we enjoy­ed every minu­te of it, with a cal­ving gla­cier front, col­lapsing ice­bergs, many birds and the who­le lot.
