Gal­lery 6: Isfjord

The next thing on the wish­list for many was to find a good gla­cier play­ground with some easi­ly acces­si­ble crev­as­ses which would enable the gla­cier hikers to learn and prac­ti­ce some rope tech­ni­ques. Falk mana­ged this bril­li­ant­ly on Esmark­breen and tho­se who wan­ted had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to actual­ly rope down into a crev­as­se, which is quite an ama­zing expe­ri­ence.

At the same time, the tun­dra hikers went into Erd­mann­flya and enjoy­ed the wide, open land­scape and the gent­le colours of the tun­dra. Claus pro­vi­ded a thread through Earth histo­ry, while reinde­er were wat­ching from the distance.

We went under sails across Isfjord, with good speed initi­al­ly, get­ting cal­mer then, so we could enjoy the beau­tiful view of Anti­gua under sail from the ding­hy befo­re Spits­ber­gen kissed us good­bye with a final beau­tiful sun­set.
