Bear on Glacier

After an eight long day of exhaustive sea voyage across the Barents Sea in search of King of Arctic, the Polar bears (Ursus Maritimus) on drift ice around Spitsbergen, Svalbard Archipelago in Norway. In the evening we went through Heleysundet in a narrow sound between Kükenthaløya and Spitsbergen. We checked an area where we had seen a Polar bear earlier in the season. We found a single male polar bear on the glacier. The background was just amazing. Indeed it is the highlight of the expedition.
