Isbukta and South East





Give me this glorious ocean life, this salt-sea life, this

briny, foamy life, when the sea neighs and snorts, and you

breathe the very breath that the great whales respire! Let

me roll around the globe, let me rock upon the sea; let me

race and pant out my life, with an eternal breeze astern,

and an endless sea before.” - Herman Melville (1819-1891)

We hope to zodiac cruise at Isbukta, south east Spitsbergen

Isbukta (“ice bay”) is the most southerly bay on the east coast of Spitsbergen island. It has a broad, 7 km opening to Storfjord. The Vasil’evbreen glacier complex extends for 20 km, dominating the icy landscape.

The glacier has retreated in recent years and the glacial front is now significantly different from what the navigational charts indicate. Also, the waters surrounding Isbukta are poorly charted, so distance between the ship’s position and our zodiac excursion destination will make for an interesting zodiac ride. The Storfjorden (norg.=great fjord) area, with its late ice break up, is an area that may provide an opportunity to sight polar bears.
