Gallery 5: Hornsund to Isfjord - Spitsbergen 12-29 July 2018

After some good sai­ling from Sør­kapp up to Horn­sund, it real­ly star­ted blowing the­re, but it cal­med down enough the next day to make a shor­ter lan­ding pos­si­ble. It also clea­red up so we got some fine views of the spec­ta­cu­lar gla­cier and moun­tain sce­ne­ry. The­re was still noti­ce­ab­le swell as we moved up to Bellsund during the next night, but once in the fjord again, it was per­fect­ly calm and we could enjoy the tun­dra, sto­ries from the old times in the­se pla­ces, the stun­ning sce­ne­ry and some ama­zing bits of geo­lo­gy. Also tho­se who were lon­ging for some good hiking inclu­ding spen­ding a night in a camp on shore final­ly got down to busi­ness, even though the wea­ther was not qui­te what we had been hoping for.

Things came tog­e­ther to clo­se the cir­cle in Isfjord, both in terms of our rou­te on the map and other­wi­se. A visit to Bar­ents­burg made our idea of 20th cen­tu­ry Spits­ber­gen pret­ty com­ple­te, and then it was back to natu­re, back to the tun­dra and the ice, in Ekmanfjord and Dick­son­fjord, Yol­dia­buk­ta with Wahlen­berg­breen and a very friend­ly Hump­back wha­le waved us good­bye for this time in Advent­fjord, just befo­re reaching the har­bour.
