Spitsbergen 30 May - 7 June, 2022, part 1

From Longyearbyen to the north

SV Antigua 2022: Spitsbergen

Fair­wea­ther days in ama­zing sur­roun­dings in nor­thwes­tern Spits­ber­gen.

After a bit of a fog­gy depar­tu­re the wea­ther got so good that it was almost sca­ry – after all, you would think that the pri­ce tag comes in the end … but it didn’t. The wea­ther remain­ed lar­ge­ly fine until the very end of the trip. A few scat­te­red rain­drops and some clouds here and the­re just added to the varie­ty.

Days wit­hout any wind or waves made it pos­si­ble to make some ama­zing landings, such as Fug­le­hu­ken on the nor­t­hern tip of Prins Karls For­lan­det on the evening on the second day (first full day, that is). Such rare landings in beau­tiful places are the icing on the cake, if you ask me.

Polar bear, Indre Norskøya

Ear­ly mor­ning polar bear sight­ing on Ind­re Nor­skøya.

Which does cer­tain­ly not mean that all the other landings were not gre­at. All of them pro­vi­ded beau­tiful impres­si­ons and an inte­res­t­ing expe­ri­ence. And the­re is, of cour­se, the wild­life. We had seve­ral polar bear sightin­gs in nor­thwes­tern Spits­ber­gen. Beau­tiful obser­va­tions, by no means invol­ving any risk, dis­tur­ban­ce or other harm to man or beast.
