Bear Island (28 June - 06 July 2010)

Ever­y­bo­dy is tra­vel­ling to small islands some­whe­re south during his holi­days. So did I − for a week, I went to Bear Island (Bjørnøya), situa­ted half-way bet­ween the north cape of Nor­way and the south cape of Spits­ber­gen. May­be not exact­ly what most peop­le would con­si­der “the south”, but a gre­at and high­ly inte­res­ting place, if you ask me.

I went forth and back over most of the island, fol­lowing the coast­li­ne from the wea­ther sta­ti­on in the north to the spec­ta­cu­lar cliffs and sea­b­ird colo­nies in the south.

Many thanks to …

As well as to the crew of the wea­ther stai­on …
