On Day 4 of our Arctic adventure, we headed straight into the clear skies towards the green mystical mountain kingdom of Polar bears and wily walrus called Karl XI. As we headed toward the island in the zodiacs it looked like we were heading straight into a missing scene from the TV show Lost.
We saw six polar bears on the island as we cruised around that showed off their personalities as we came by in the boats circling the small island. Polar Bears are listed as Vulnerable Status by the World Wildlife Fund due to the shrinking amount of animals that are left on the planet. In the Svalbard archipelago, the 3000 polar bears actually outnumber humans according to the Norwegian government.
