Spitsbergen with SV Antigua, September 2018

The wea­ther remain­ed on our side and we had ano­ther cou­ple of gre­at days, start­ing with the rare oppor­tu­ni­ty of a landing on Mof­fen on 80 degrees north. Mof­fen is a pret­ty spe­cial island. The wea­ther was good, the landing was good, the wal­rus­ses were good. Ever­y­thing was good. It was also good that the­re was much less pla­s­tic (fishing nets etc.) left on Mof­fen when we left than befo­re. It was not the first time on this trip that we had remo­ved a fair share of pla­s­tic from the­se arc­tic bea­ches.

Next was a visit to the hut at Gråhu­ken – the­re are quite a few fans of Chris­tia­ne Rit­ter on board – and an evening visit to the bay Mus­ham­na, with a cosy fire on the beach.

Mona­co­b­reen is a well-known scenic high­light in this area, the huge gla­ciers and moun­ta­ins the­re are real­ly stun­ning. And so was the wea­ther. Again! The­re was no landing („only“ a Zodiac crui­se in ice) today, becau­se the place envi­sa­ged for an after­noon walk was alre­a­dy occu­p­ied by a polar bear fami­ly. Some­thing we could abso­lut­e­ly live with, as is safe to say wit­hout exag­ge­ra­ti­on.

So we were keen on a good walk which we got in Raud­fjord a day later, enjoy­ing the gre­at sce­n­ery from ele­va­ted posi­ti­ons. From the­re on via Fuglefjord to Dan­s­køya. Stun­ning evening light in Kob­befjord, ano­ther place that does not see too many visi­tors.
