We woke up in Bellsund, the outer part of two fjords, Van Keulenfjord and Van Mijenfjord. Just before breakfast, we spotted a polar bear walking along the shore of Van Mijenfjord. During the morning, the staff were introduced to the guests, and expedition leader David Berg gave a thorough orientation on Svalbard operations. The whole afternoon was spent at Vårsolbukt on the northern part of Bellsund, and most of the guests went ashore for a hike. This is an area well known for its rich wildlife.
