Expedition to Nordaustland

18 August - 10 September 2010 with SV Arctica

The­re were six of us on board when we left with the sai­ling boat Arc­ti­ca, which is small, but high­ly sui­ta­ble for the pur­po­se: get­ting to some of the remo­test are­as of the Spits­ber­gen archi­pe­la­go. The idea was to look for fur­ther remains left by the ill-fated Ger­man Schrö­der-Stranz Expe­di­ti­on, who drop­ped four mem­bers, inclu­ding the lea­der, in Duvefjord in late sum­mer 1912. All four dis­ap­peared and the details of their last jour­ney are still unknown.

Unfort­u­na­te­ly, too soon the ice ente­red Duvefjord and we had to lea­ve too ear­ly in order to make new dis­co­veries. On the other hand, this left us with even more time for our second obli­ga­ti­on, film­ing arc­tic wild­life. And so we did, with con­sidera­ble suc­cess.
