Polar Bear Expedition in Svalbard – Part 2

The ice blocked our passage further north and east and we turned back and headed south again down the coast of Svalbard. We came across some drift ice forming little islands which the walrus used to rest and warm up. With the zodiacs we came very close to them and they were not really bothered by our presence.We even found the odd seal on the ice as well. It seems that all the wild life here is not really perturbed by us humans to much, which is very nice to see. On the other hand that makes them easy targets for the hunters. We did some landings on some islands and then on Sarstangen where we found some more walrus on the beach. More to follow.
