Franz Josef Land & Svalbard - 2018

A bonus for our returning to Svalbard was the glorious weather we enjoyed. We were under blue skies with shining white clouds rather than gray curtains of fog and overcast conditions. Temperatures were somewhat higher (in the 40s) as well.

Day 12 - Alkehornet

Since we had left our armed Russian rangers in FJL, we had to return to Longyearbyen to pick up some rifles and flares so we could do some landings in the Svalbard Archipelago where Polar Bears often visit and stay awhile. The scenery was stunning as we made our way up Adventfjord to reach Longyearbyen to pick up our rifles.
