Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Ortelius

Das Erlebte und Gesehene hat sich so summiert, dass ich einige Wochen brauche, um die Spitzbergenumrundung zu verarbeiten. Spitzbergen ist Natur pur. Eisbären aus 15 Meter Entfernung zu bestaunen - da kommt eine grosse Freude auf. Walrosse zu beobachten macht ganz einfach Spass. Den violetten Steinbrech, den weissen und gelben Svalbardmohn, intensiv hellgrüne Moose und orangene Flechten - welche Farbenpracht in der kargen Tundra. Und der Ruf von 100’000 Lummen beim Vogelfelsen - unüberhörbar. Der Vorstoss mit der Ortelius ins Packeis - ein grosses Erlebnis. Wer Freude am Nordskandinavien hat, soll sich noch nördlicher nach Spitzbergen aufmachen. Er oder sie wird es nie bereuen.
