Back from the ice of Svalbard

We have visited the wilderness of Svalbard with the motor ship Stockholm again. The trip included the sight of 11 polar bears and most the other mammals typical of this arctic region. It is always interesting to visit this part of the world and it is never the same sights. I had never before seen a polar bear playing with objects. After two years of eating on a whale carcass the polar bears have to dive down to find food. A young polar bear did not had the skill to do that and played instead with the baleen of the whale.

Please take a look at our photographs from the arctics here.
