Gallery 3: On the west coast again

The wind that was atta­ched to the south cape see­med to have a lot of pati­ence, so we just did the same on the west coast. The­re are so many stun­nin­gly beau­tiful fjords and bays, you can spend weeks on end the­re! It just looks a bit fun­ny on the map. Espe­ci­al­ly in the For­lands­und area, our actu­al rou­te reminds a bit of a ball of wool 🙂

It was quite win­dy in Kross­fjord, except from Lil­lie­höök­breen, whe­re we spend a gre­at mor­ning. So we took off and went to Kongsfjord, whe­re we made a love­ly hike on Blom­strand­hal­vøya, inves­ti­ga­ting a coas­tal cave and a real grot­to.

Then we went into Isfjor­den – quite unu­su­al in the midd­le of such a long voya­ge, but hey, why not? – whe­re we were wel­co­med by a lar­ge pod of Belugas and went to visit some very inte­res­t­ing places in Ekm­anfjord inclu­ding Cora­hol­men, a fasci­na­ting island lar­ge­ly made up of red morai­nes. I guess that’s what it looks like on Mars, kind of.

After excur­si­ons into Ymer­buk­ta and to Barents­burg, we said good­bye to civi­li­sa­ti­on again and hea­ded south, whe­re the wea­ther see­med to clear up now.
