Gallery 3: Back to Isfjord

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

The silent, but in its own way beau­tiful land­scape is one thing that we will remem­ber about Ves­le Raud­fjord – but also the ama­zing amount of pla­s­tic pol­lu­ti­on on the bea­ches. After our visit, the­re was at least a bit less of that shit than befo­re.

This was fol­lo­wed by a litt­le tour with a big view in Raud­fjord, befo­re we con­tin­ued back to the nor­thwes­tern cor­ner, enjoy­ing stun­ning sce­n­ery and some polar histo­ry in Sal­ly­ham­na and in Fuglefjord. Then the curtain clo­sed out­side, regar­ding wea­ther and visi­bi­li­ty, so we just made some mile to the south, back towards Isfjord.

The­re, we went straight to Barents­burg, hiding from the wea­ther, which show­ed its­elf from a rather win­tery and rough side the who­le day. Which isn’t too bad if your choice for the after­noon is muse­um, shop­ping, sau­na, café, lec­tu­re on board or, for the har­dy ones, a walk up the hills behind Barents­burg. Or if you, as Dani­el did, shoot the best arc­tic fox pho­tos of the who­le sea­son!

We spent the last full day in Bil­lefjord. Tho­se incli­ned to stretch their legs got their oppor­tu­ni­ty to hike up a moun­tain to gain some alti­tu­de and a gre­at view, while others took a rela­xed approach and enjoy­ed the grand sce­n­ery of and around Nor­dens­ki­öld­breen. Then we went for our last landing at Gips­huks­let­ta, whe­re the sep­tem­ber sun show­ed off again, trea­ting us with stun­ning light.
