Gal­le­ry 4: The west coast (2) – 06/27-2017/07/14

After a long sai­ling pas­sa­ge around the south cape – up to 11.5 knots under sail – it was time to stretch legs a bit in Recher­chefjord. In Van Keu­len­fjord, it was a bit grey; in clear wea­ther, it is one of the most beau­ti­ful sce­nic are­as of Spits­ber­gen. The same can be said about Kongsfjord, whe­re the wea­ther was clear­ly impro­ving. Hold on – befo­re we came that far, we had gone through For­landsund, visi­t­ing wal­rus­ses and enjoy­ing an after­noon under sails, lis­tening to the dra­ma of Møkle­by and Simon­sen and later even visi­t­ing the remains of the geo­phy­si­cal obser­va­to­ry at Kva­de­hu­ken, whe­re their tra­ge­dy had star­ted.

Well, it was a bit of a sur­pri­se that we had tra­v­eled Spits­ber­gen for a good 10 days with see­ing anything real­ly of a polar bear. This was to chan­ge in Smee­ren­burgfjord, much to ever­y­bo­dies delight.
