Spitsbergen 2013

An online log of Atlantis' travels and adventures to Svalbard

Forlandsundet & Poolepynden

Posted by admin on June 15, 2013

All well on board at 78º 30N 012º 12E well up the Forlandsundet which separates Spitzbergen from the off-lying Prins Karls Forland.  Heater failed last night which is a blow; but to morale rather than ambition or plans.  Pics below taken at Poolepynten - a low lying spit headland much favoured by walrus; it has an important and, in these parts, rare navigation beacon for humans too.
