Advanced Spitsbergen with SY Arctica II

02nd – 20th August 2016

This voya­ge took us away from well-trod­den tou­rist tracks to remo­te parts of the Spits­ber­gen archi­pe­la­go. For 18 inten­se days, we did not fol­low a set rou­te, but made decis­i­ons as we went, fol­lo­wing wind and wea­ther and always the bow of the boat. We made many exci­ting trips to litt­le islands and into beau­tiful fjords and enjoy­ed some ama­zing encoun­ters with the arc­tic wild­life. Over the days, skip­per Hein­rich Eggen­fell­ner from Lon­gye­ar­by­en, fel­low gui­de Kers­tin Lan­gen­ber­ger from Germany/Iceland, 9 expe­di­tio­ners and I for­med a team that kept the spi­rits well up even when it was grey, win­dy and wet. We enjoy­ed life on board and on the tun­dra, whe­re we made it at least once per day, most­ly twice or even three times even though the wea­ther was not always on our side. We got to some places that are very rare­ly visi­ted by tou­rists. Exci­ting, unfor­gettable days!
