Gallery 2: the north coast

Spitsbergen's north coast

It was time for a mountain hike when we came to the stunningly beautiful Raudfjord and we enjoyed the view from Solanderfjellet over fjord, mountains and glaciers. Later, the sea was still calm enough for a landing on the rather exposed coast at Gråhuken to visit the famous hut where Christiane Ritter wintered with her husband and another hunter (the wintering resulted in the book “A woman in the polar night”). In Sorgfjord, we enjoyed another great mountain hike with beautiful views in fine weather. A blue whale sighting in Hinlopen Strait rounded this part of our voyage off in a very enjoyable way.
