The big polar bear last night let us film him for a good while, few meters away from the boat, lit with the searchlight. Northern lights were dancing in the sky, the moon was twinkling, and there was not a breath of air. We could hear him breathe, and by -30°C, snow was crunching loudly under his steps. It was the seventh visit in 2 days. Polar bears came closer to shore, they are also waiting for pack ice to form again.
