M7. Spitsbergen – Bear Island – Tromsø
July 18-29, 2022
This journey starts in Longyearbyen on the Svalbard Archipelago.
We still will stay in Spitsbergen for a few days: after Longyearbyen we’ll sail into the Isfjord to Tryghamna (overnight) and than 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. We will explore the Hornsund during several days.
Eventually we will leave Spitsbergen behind and cross over to Bear Island. With a favourable 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 28,or the morning of July 29 at the end of our journey.
