Gallery 5: Back to the west coast

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

After the remo­te and rather untouch­ed wil­der­ness of Nord­aus­t­land, the west coast almost has a touch of civi­li­sa­ti­on again. Almost. Actual­ly, it is beau­tiful arc­tic wil­der­ness, which we enjoy­ed tho­rough­ly in Horn­sund.

After a rai­ny day in Recher­chefjord, we made a long hike in Van Keu­len­fjor­den and used the rare oppor­tu­ni­ty to visit an impres­si­ve gla­cier cave. You have to use an oppor­tu­ni­ty like this when you have it. It will not exist fore­ver.

Back in Isfjord, the wea­ther forced us into the first fjord available. But tho­se who thought that Grønfjord does not have any nice sce­n­ery had a nice les­son to learn the­re. And in Barents­burg, we could slow­ly get accus­to­med to civi­li­sa­ti­on again … 😉
