King of the Arctic

Polar Bear

Then here he is, the absolute King of the Arctic: the Polar Bear. One of the goals of our time in the pack ice is an encounter with the King in his own realm. It can sometimes be very hard to find one, but this day we didn’t have any problems. This one came basically running towards the ship. Maybe attracted by the smells of the chefs dinner that was being prepared, or just by curiosity, but he gave us very good looks. Here a picture of him walking around on the ice.
