Hornsund, Svalbard

Jun 07, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer


This morning we had a beautiful cruise into Hornsund, Svalbard as we prepared for our morning excursions, which included hikes in the fjord. The sun was shining, and the energy was still very high after yesterday’s incredible polar bear sighting. We broke up into several groups on shore and led hikes around the area, enjoying the spectacular scenery around us. In the afternoon we continued to enjoy the glaciers in Hornsund and embarked on Zodiac cruises around the ice. Another epic day in Svalbard!
