Spitsbergen with SV Meander, 01-18 July 2023

Part 1: From Longyearbyen to Kongsfjord

Wooly lousewort, Kapp Wijk, Dicksonfjord

Woo­ly lou­se­wort in Dick­son­fjord.

The very begin­ning was a bit grey, but it took less than an hour after depar­tu­re until we had our first ama­zing wild­life encoun­ter, a group of belugas in Advent­fjord. Next mor­ning in Dick­son­fjord, the sky was clear again, and so it remain­ed lar­ge­ly for more than a week! Good for us, but it was pro­ba­b­ly the driest July in Lon­gye­ar­by­en sin­ce 1998, accor­ding to Sval­bard­pos­ten. Well, the month is not quite over yet at the time of wri­ting.

In any case we could enjoy a lot of sun, and so we did and we made good use of all the oppor­tu­ni­ties that came with the good wea­ther – start­ing in Isfjord and For­lands­und on the way north into Kongsfjord. Beau­tiful days! The pho­to gal­lery below will give you some good impres­si­ons.

Then it was time to get on and move nor­thwards.
