Bellsund, Svalbard

Jun 12, 2019 - National Geographic Explorer


As guests awoke on board National Geographic Explorer, the ship navigated the fjord of Bellsund. Our first morning was spent exploring this scenic fjord system for wildlife while plans were made for an afternoon ashore at Vårsoleukta. This landing is a great introduction to the Svalbard tundra and one of the first places each year where snow melts, allowing wildlife to thrive.
