Gallery 6: west coast (2)

Svalbard with SV Arctica II, 2017 - photo gallery west coast (2): from Sørkapp Land to Pyramiden

The first landing on the west coast after roun­ding the south cape, in a rare­ly visi­ted part of Sør­kapp Land, was unfor­gettable. Not only becau­se Bjørns­kau­buk­ta is yet ano­ther place that is hard­ly seen by tou­rists (we were quite suc­cessful with such places in this trip), but also becau­se of the impres­si­ve sal­to a retro­so by our skip­per. A mas­ter­pie­ce!

The wind fol­lo­wed us for a while, so in Bell­sund we made a love­ly tour in Recher­chefjord and then we deci­ded to spend a cou­ple of hours at anchor to wait for the wind to calm down befo­re ven­tu­ring on the final open sea pas­sa­ge north and back into Isfjord. The­re, we spent two very plea­sant last days, visi­ting the Rus­si­an sett­le­ments Barents­burg and Pyra­mi­den and making nice hikes in their various sur­roun­dings, befo­re retur­ning to Lon­gye­ar­by­en after a total of 1174 nau­ti­cal miles.
