Wide-open snowy tundra and old huts. More polar bears and a big glacier

The arc­tic sum­mer is still young in ear­ly July, the snow is wet and ple­ntyful in the flat tun­dra at the north coast of Spits­ber­gen. But the wea­ther is good and we can make an easy landing at Gråhu­ken, whe­re Chris­tia­ne Rit­ter win­tered in 1934-35. The wea­ther also paints beau­tiful reflec­tions onto the calm water in the lagoon of Mus­ham­na, but our long hike sud­den­ly turns into a long, exci­ting obser­va­ti­on of seve­ral polar bears. A first-class encoun­ter! May­be the gla­cier in the evening was almost a bit too much? But who would say no to such a scenic high­light under a blue arc­tic sky?
