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.
