Gallery 1: Krossfjord and Kongsfjord

North Spitsbergen under sail with SV Antigua, 19-29 september 2019

The first pas­sa­ge gave us won­der­ful evening light over Isfjord and the first morning some waves, which led to mixed reac­tions from “can I plea­se get a heli­co­p­ter as soon as pos­si­ble” to someo­ne deci­ding to return alrea­dy in Octo­ber to join the Anti­gua for the cros­sing to the main­land in order to get some real waves … 🙂 that’s how dif­fer­ent­ly you can look at it, and ever­y­bo­dy is right in his or her way of per­cei­ving things.

Any­way, soon after bre­ak­fast we ent­e­red Kongsfjord/Krossfjord and made our first lan­ding in Signe­ham­na. Later, we went into some other ones of Krossfjord’s various bran­ches, visi­t­ing a few gla­ciers, loo­king at them from dif­fe­rent pre­spec­ti­ves, from the ship and from land.

The next day was cer­tain­ly amongst the high­lights of the trip (well, which day wasn’t, after all?). The wea­ther was just par­ti­cu­lar­ly beau­ti­ful! We went across Blom­strand­hal­vøya, “clim­bing” the hig­hest “peaks”, Irgensfjel­let and Brat­lie­kol­len – stun­ning views! In the after­noon, we went to Sig­rid­hol­men, one of the small, but beau­ti­ful islands of Lové­nøya­ne, and later, we finis­hed the day in Ny-Åle­sund, Spitsbergen’s nort­hern­most sett­le­ment.
