The big crossing, part 3: Spitsbergen

Lofoten – Bear Island – Spitsbergen with SV Antigua – 22nd Mai – 03rd June, 2016

Spits­ber­gen! Home, sweet home shel­te­red bays, stun­ning sce­n­ery, short distances … things are dif­fe­rent now, much to our favour. Amost all fjords offer shel­te­red bea­ches, varied impres­si­ons, litt­le hikes, wild­life. Sun­ny scenic beau­ty in Horn­sund, good sce­n­ery and more in Bell­sund, wal­rus mad­ness on the west coast, post-sov­jet-style pro­pa­gan­da beau­ty in Barents­burg, even more sce­n­ery, tun­dra, wild­life … in Ymer­buk­ta, in Bore­buk­ta, in Tem­pel­fjor­den … and, and, and. I could wri­te a book about the trip (actual­ly, we did – the tri­plog), but the­re is not enough time now, time is scar­ce, the arc­tic sum­mer is always hec­tic. It has been a good trip, even wit­hout a polar bear (we can’t serious­ly count the 0.5 pixel polar bear in Van Mijenfjord, it was invi­si­ble for most peo­p­le). Five days in Spits­ber­gen are not too much time, you need a bit of luck for a good sight­ing, and we just did not have it this time – you always have to lea­ve some­thing for next time. Other than that … lots of gre­at stuff!
