This morning, we found some sunshine and settled weather inside Forlandsund, a long, narrow bay that separates the mainland of Spitsbergen and the island of Prins Karls Fordland. Not quite half way up from the southern tip is a small point known as Poolepynten, which is a known haul-out for walrus. In small groups, we slowly approached the haul-out so everyone could get close-up views of walrus after a short walk from the landing. In the afternoon, we found some stunning scenery inside St. Jonsfjord, and many guests took advantage of the fine afternoon weather to partake in a variety of hikes and photo walks.
