A friend­ly wind brought us to Heley­sund, one of Spitsbergen’s nicest tun­dra are­as.

After an evening visit to a bird colo­ny, we found Spitsbergen’s polar bear capi­tal on a moun­tain slo­pe on Bar­entsøya. Wit­hin may­be two kilo­me­tres, the­re were more than two dozens of them. They were liter­al­ly all over the place. Unbe­liev­a­ble, exci­ting, beau­ti­ful, unre­al but tru­ly out the­re, on that unf­or­gett­able evening.

Storfjord calm as a lake, that is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to make a lan­ding on Spitsbergen’s east coast, and ide­al for wha­le­watching.
