Gallery 1: the northern west coast

04-22 August 2019

It was a good start, with fine wea­ther and calm sea in Isfjord, blue sky and suns­hi­ne. We made good use of this and made a first litt­le walk alre­a­dy the first evening, on Bohe­man­nes­et. The next walk was a bit more deman­ding, on the litt­le moun­tain Knu­v­len in Trygg­ham­na. Later the same day we saw our first wal­ru­ses on Prins Karls For­land.

After a visit to a stun­ning gla­cier in nor­t­hern For­lands­und, we went to Ny-Åle­sund, Spitsbergen’s nor­t­hern­most sett­le­ment. Last cont­act with zivi­li­sa­ti­on for a while! But not for long, we con­tin­ued to one of the ama­zing gla­ciers in Kongsfjord, made a brief visit to Kross­fjord and later, on our way fur­ther north, we made a litt­le detour to a bird cliff on the west coast.

We were for­t­u­na­te to have Mag­da­le­nefjord to our­sel­ves, wit­hout any other ship, so of cour­se we grab­bed the oppor­tu­ni­ty to make a walk on Grav­ne­set. Then we had a look if the ent­rance to Ham­burg­buk­ta is deep enough for Arc­ti­ca II. It is.

Fuglefjord with its stun­ning moun­tain- and gla­cier sce­n­ery is on the nor­t­her­most west coast of Spits­ber­gen, so then we con­tin­ued on the north coast.
