Spitsbergen 2013

An online log of Atlantis' travels and adventures to Svalbard

Raftsund & Trollfjord

Posted by admin on June 4, 2013

We left Svolvaer as planned after fuelling and on a rising tide in order to transit a narrow and shallow cut into the Raftsund.  From there it was but a mile to the entrance to the extraordinary Trollfjorden.  Pictures paint a thousand words. Click 'Read full post' below for others.

Picturesque fuel berth - Svolvaer

Miserable weather

 
 
 
 

Trollfjorden

We had the fjord to ourselves as is was getting on for midnight.  Despite being severely tempted to stop for the reminder of the night to await the end to the day's persistent rain, self discipline prevailed and we set north along Raftsund to the open sea.  As at 1630 BST (now 4th June) we are 50 miles north of the Lofoten range and heading north - or at least we would be if the wind wasn't from there too.  Instead we are heading more north-westerly to cross a narrow ridge of high pressure.  We were expecting to have to do this and have great hopes of better wind strength and direction in a day or two.  Spirits are high, the temperature is lower.

Good to read of discipline (and will keep it in mind next time the cellar door, which is hanging off its hinge for two years, falls down) but why not enjoy the fjord? Xx
