Svalbard with SY Arctica II, 2017

18 inten­se days in Spits­ber­gen, with a lot of rare lan­dings in remo­te pla­ces, far from the trod­den path. Often, we went ashore whe­re other ships just pass in miles’ distance, if they get the­re at all – Col­l­ins­od­den, Kve­dfjor­dbuk­ta, Lady Fran­klin­fjord (with all 3 lan­dings the­re), Engeløya, Bjørns­kau­buk­ta … to men­ti­on just a few names, which all have in com­mon that hard­ly anyo­ne will know them. But all of them are won­der­ful bits of arc­tic natu­re, hard­ly ever step­ped on by tou­rists. We were the­re! One of the high­lights on our list of rare lan­dings was Ros­søya, the nort­hern­most land in Sval­bard – this time, we made it to the top!

We had gre­at wild­life obser­va­ti­on oppor­tu­nities from bird cliffs and wal­rus­ses to polar bears, inclu­ding a stun­ning encoun­ter which remains unf­or­gett­able. Read more about it in the pages lin­ked up below and in the triplog (Ger­man only, sor­ry) – and of cour­se the pho­to gal­le­ries.
