Gallery 1: Kongsfjord

A science village, a bird cliff and a blue whale

The first day out in Spitsbergen’s natu­re. Ny Åle­sund pro­vi­des an easy tran­si­ti­on from civi­li­sa­ti­on to the arc­tic wil­der­ness. Geese and foxes are roa­ming through the vil­la­ge bet­ween sci­en­tists and tou­rists. Roald Amund­sen star­ted his suc­cess­ful North Pole flight here in 1928.

The first deep dive in real arc­tic wil­der­ness was to come in the after­noon with a visit to a bird cliff deep in the fjord. The Blue wha­le was the icing on the cake of this first day.
