Spitsbergen – Bear Island – Tromsø 2021

B7. Spitsbergen – Bear Island – Tromsø

July 17-28, 2021

This journey starts in Longyearbyen on the Svalbard Archipelago.

We will moor at the island of Spitsbergen for a few days, and then via the Isfjord (Tryghamna) we sail to the south, anchoring in the Recherche Fjord. This area is known for its plentiful fossils. There are often a group of reindeer grazing here.  We also look forward to spotting polar bears, beluga whales, Arctic foxes and whales here.

After the Recherchefjord our ship continues south to the very impressive Hornsund, with its high, snowy mountains and beautiful coves.

Eventually we will leave Spitsbergen behind and cross over to Bear Island. With a favorable wind, we will anchor at the weather station and go ashore there.

After 1 or 2 days on Bear Island we will cross to the mainland of Norway, where we enjoy meandering through its beautiful bays. Hopefully we will encounter whales and killer whales (often seen here)!

We finally arrive in cozy Tromsø, Norway on the evening of July 27 (or the morning of July 28) at the end of our journey.
