When you’re out driving snowmobile in Spitsbergen on a February full moon night, it is important to stop now and then and enjoy the scenery and the silence.

The fab group of @twintracksexpeditions Svalbard tour at Nelson Island, one of the Seven Islands, the northernmost part of the Svalbard archipelago.
Our ship, the @polarfront_ship above us.
What if? What if an important person had disappeared from history before the important events had taken place? What if the to-be Lord Nelson’s life had been ended on Sjuøyane?
A 14-year-old cadet by the name of Horatio Nelson came along on Pipps’ expedition to the North. An outgoing boy, full of initiative, Nelson had talked his way onto the ship Carcass.
Horatio tried to kill a Polarbear on this island in 1773, but his muscett jammed and the bear almost got him. Destiny wanted it othervise, and he survived to become the hero of Trafalgar defeating the spanish/french fleet in 1805.

(Remember sound!😄) The most awesome @johncaley performs a pianoconsert in the cultural house of the abandoned Russian mining town of Pyramid on Spitsbergen.
The piano has been frozen and defrozen many times
the last almost 30 years, so considering the quality on the instrument, I think John’s performance is quite cool!!

To sit in the hot tub of the @polarfront_ship in the late evening sun and watch icebergs drift by, after a long day in the zodiacs high north on Svalbard, thats one of the things you get on a 12 pax arctic tour with @twintracksexpeditions .

I am probably the qutest and cuddliest Polarbear in all of Svalbard.
If you come ashore here, I promise i won’t scratch you with my shiny black nails😎

You‘ll never forget your first meeting with a lovesick, singing Walrus in the driftice.
Not exactly an Andrea Bocelli ballad, but still a moment to remember😊
During a @twintracksexpeditions at @polarfront_ship in Svalbard.

Incoming squad of torpedobomber towards the @polarfront_ship in the Strait of Hinlopen at Svalbard during a @twintracksexpeditions tour.
It is almost no visual wildlife at Svalbard throughout the winter, but when summer comes, it explodes in birds.

The art of arctic adventures by @twintracksexpeditions :
-When you have been for hours icecruising in zodiacs in stunning scenery with exotic wildlife, you come back to the @polarfront_ship having a good laugh in the on deck sauna, and a cold beer on the rear deck hot-tub enjoying more landscape as it passes by.
Best part: you are only up to 14 guests on a 55 meter long ship!

The Polarfront:
Former Norwegian weathership
bought by the French company Latitude Blanche a year ago, and then refurbished into the unrecognizable on the inside: the cabins, restaurant, salons etc is just amazing. 55 meter ship prepared for 14 guests, thats pure luxury arctic exploration.
This is a frame from Hinlopen strait on Svalbard, during @twintracksexpeditions first journey with the @polarfront_ship .
A journey that certainly became positive epic!
