Gallery 2: The east coast - 06/27-2017/07/14

The best things in life just hap­pen unex­pec­ted­ly. That is how it work­ed with our landing on the expo­sed sou­thern­most coast of Spits­ber­gen.

Nobo­dy will for­get Isbuk­ta and, later, the wha­les in Storfjord under glit­te­ring suns­hi­ne. Or the rare landing on the east coast with dino­saur foot­prints, a polar fox fami­ly, a rug­ged coast­li­ne, love­ly tun­dra and an ele­va­ted per­spec­ti­ve.

Negri­b­reen was a stun­ning expe­ri­ence. Parts of this migh­ty gla­cier are curr­ent­ly sur­ging. Its cal­ving ice cliff is com­ple­te­ly bro­ken and wild, and up to 70 m (!) high in places!
