Gallery - The southern west coast

After a long nights spent with various whales in southern Storfjord, we finally returned to the west coast and went into Hornsund. Some fog banks painted great light effects into an otherwise crystalclear sky. A unique landscape on a unique day.

Back to normal life in Bellsund, with a grey cloud cover, which did not keep us from discovering and enjoying more, including another longer hike with overnight on shore. On the final passage back to Isfjord, we felt that we really were on a small ship out on a big sea, just a few hours. It is part of any trip at sea, you have to take it as it comes.

A visit to one of Spitsbergen’s Russian settlement was not to be missed, before we got back down to earth again in the beautiful nature, rounding the trip off.
