Spitsbergen Cruise Photos

From: MS Nordstjernen cruise review


Magdalenefjord and Gravneset

Just uphill from the beach, we saw a tent that was used by armed guards. (Unlike Nordstjernen's passengers, visitors from most cruise ships aren't accompanied by Svalbard guides, so the governor's office stations two watchmen at Gravneset during the summer to protect tourists and the environment.)

Also nearby was a small cabin used by rangers who patrol the area on a regular basis.
