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.
