We woke to the patter of rain on our tent, a rather unexpected occurrence on a polar expedition.
After such a wonderful clear day yesterday, we were greeted this morning with moody skies, rain and a gusting south-easterly wind.
Memories of our Iceland expedition flooded back.
Thankfully our Arc’teryx gear is so adaptable to a range of environments, high polar caps to wet valleys.
We explored the Fulmardalen valley to the base of the Marmorbreen glacier before making camp.
We will start our journey back to Longyearbyen tomorrow, temperatures are due to fall to the -20’s so we’re looking forward to more polar conditions to come.
