Gallery 2: Nordaustland

Spitsbergen with SV Antigua, September 2018

The wea­ther fore­cast loo­ked fine, so we set cour­se for some more remo­te cor­ners and rea­ched Murch­ison­fjord on Nord­aus­t­land after a night under sail. We spent two full days in nor­t­hern Hin­lo­pen Strait, most­ly in Murch­ison­fjord whe­re we went hiking, explo­red the old rese­arch sta­ti­on in Kinn­vi­ka and its scenic sur­roun­dings and a small island whe­re we found one of only two ori­gi­nal cros­ses from the Pomor peri­od which are still stan­ding.

As we star­ted to sail west again, we made a stop in Sorg­fjord whe­re the wea­ther was so good that some were tempt­ed to a polar plun­ge – a pret­ty refres­hing expe­ri­ence!
