Gallery - The far northeast

Being faced with good ice- and wea­ther con­di­ti­ons, we took the oppor­tu­ni­ty to sail around not just the main island of Spits­ber­gen, but also Nord­aus­t­land, visi­t­ing some of Svalbard’s remo­test islands. Amongst them Sjuøya­ne, from whe­re you can almost see the north pole, Storøya, whe­re we spent an unf­or­gett­able morning with a good dozen of polar bears and Kvi­tøya, whe­re we got as clo­se to the Andrée-expedition’s final camp, next to the impres­si­ve ice cap, as that polar bear allo­wed that was wal­king around not far from it.

The end­less ice cliff of sou­the­as­tern Nord­aus­t­land is as impres­si­ve as it is long, and the polar desert in its neigh­bour­hood tur­ned out to be a palaeo­zoic para­di­se.
