Hansjürgen van de Loo

Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Ortelius

Der Titel der Reise weckt Erwartungen, die mit dem Antreffen von 2 Bären an nur einem Tag von 7 für mich nicht erfüllt wurden. Es wurde mehr Wert auf den Besuch von Fjorden gelegt als nach mehr Eisbären im Packeis gesucht. Das Hin und Her zwischen Packeis und Fjorden war nicht zielführend, so dass ich den Eindruck hatte, hier wird doch mit gebremstem Schaum gefahren.
