The arctic adventure continues! On our second to last day in Longyearbyen we were supposed to go on a snowcat adventure to an ice cave somewhere in the area. Unfortunately, the excursion was cancelled. As it turns out, there was not enough snow for the snowcat to ride on and get to the ice cave. It was such a bummer! But, I made the best of the time that was freed up because of this.
I decided to go to the museum and have a wander around the water front…well, ice front, as everything was still frozen over. It was blooming cold, as it had been all week. But, it was nice to get around town a bit, do some souvenir shopping (there wasn’t much), get some lunch and do some much appreciated relaxing. The town was basically just a few streets so it really didn’t take that long. This was fine by me, I didn’t come to Svalbard for city life, anyway!
These photos were taken around noon. This time of the month (early February) is known for its ‘blue hour’. It gives such a magical, off wordly beautiful vibe. And I was there, woah!
