With SV Antigua to the ice

Spitsbergen, 01-09 June 2019

Under sail to Spitsbergen’s ice and wild­life, that was the idea for this voya­ge in the very ear­ly arc­tic sum­mer, in ear­ly June 2019, with SV Anti­gua. And it was pret­ty much what hap­pen­ed: the­re was ice, the­re was wild­life. The­re was snow, the­re were snow shoes. The­re was some snow-free tun­dra. The­re was a lot of arc­tic natu­re out­side and good spi­rits insi­de.

In other words: it was real­ly a good trip, very enjoya­ble and rich in memo­ries. Even though the sun was a rare phe­no­me­non through several days, but we also got our share of fine wea­ther in the begin­ning and in the end. All polar bears seem cur­r­ent­ly to have gathe­red in Isfjord, and we saw several ones the­re, alt­hough a bit distant. And the who­le rest of it: polar fox, rein­de­er, a good num­ber of bird spe­ci­es … Ingolf iden­ti­fied birds that many others amongst us did not even see 🙂

Here is the triplog as pdf for down­load (Ger­man only).

The fol­lowing pages have pho­to gal­le­ries of the indi­vi­du­al legs of our jour­ney and a few words about what kind of expe­ri­ence that part gene­ral­ly gave to us. Enjoy fol­lowing our wake!

Some of the pla­ce­n­a­mes and spe­ci­es names are lin­ked up to other pages on this web­site that have back­ground infor­ma­ti­on or 360 degree pho­tos of tho­se sites.
