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.
