Spitsbergen under sail with SV Antigua, 25 June - 12 July 2019

Gallery 4: the east coast

We spent a long and abso­lut­e­ly gre­at after­noon with count­less litt­le auks in Hyt­te­vi­ka on our way to the south. Then we went around the south cape – final­ly! We couldn’t have cho­sen a bet­ter day, the sea was flat­calm. Things con­tin­ued to be per­fect as we ven­tu­red up Spitsbergen’s east coast, so we could explo­re some fasci­na­ting places, landing at Mark­ham­breen and in Kval­vå­gen. Stun­ning places away from the trod­den path, that’s how it is sup­po­sed to be

But things were not what they were sup­po­sed to be at Barent­søya. We could enjoy some time with the ice, but then the com­bi­na­ti­on of wind, poor visi­bi­li­ty and ice got a bit too much, so we took off … life in the arc­tic! But who cares, it was time to get back to the west coast any­way and it would be good to have some time left the­re. We made good use of that “extra” time in For­lands­und and Ymer­buk­ta befo­re it was time to head back to Lon­gyear­ben.
