Gallery 2: Far north

Advanced Spitsbergen with SY Arctica II, 02nd – 20th August 2016

On the nor­t­hern­most islands, we found wal­rus­ses, a polar bear and, well, the nor­t­hern­most islands. But the world con­ti­nues even bey­ond tho­se nor­t­hern­most islands. We went to the 81st par­al­lel under sail and fog. On Karl XII Øya and Foynøya we made rare landings in bare­ly touch­ed arc­tic natu­re. On Storøya, we did not make a landing, but got stun­ning impres­si­ons from the hour­glass-shaped ice cap in wild light and atmo­sphe­re.

The nor­t­hern coast of Nord­aus­t­land is rocky, bar­ren and wild. Step by step, we made our way from island to fjord, from fjord to island, towards Hin­lo­pen Strait.
