Per Trovik – Svalbard 2010

  Per Trovik
  Asker, Norway


 The summer 2010 I travelled with “Naturfokus” on a boat trip around Svalbard. Ole Jørgen had hired M/S Stockholm for ten days with the intention of spending extra days on the northeast side of Svalbard. The first stop on this voyage was “Holmiabukta” where there were a whale carcass. The captain anchored M/S Stockholm with the stern pointing into the bay. We could, form the afterdeck the entire day, shoot pictures of polar beer “fishing” for whale meet. After this the voyage went up along the west cost of Spitsbergen heading for the Nordaustlandet. We vent all the way up to 81 degrees north before changing course back to the east side of Nordaustlandet. We had open passage through “Hinlopenstretet” and we returned along the west cost of Spitsbergen back to Longyearbyen. The wether was good, the light was marvelous, and with several exiting trips in the zodiac the experience could no have been better!
