Gene­ral: Heley­sund, Orm­ho­let and Straum­s­land Heley­sund is the nar­row strait that sepa­ra­tes the nort­hern tip of Bar­entsøya from Spits­ber­gen. The strait is dif­fi­cult to see from the distance and it was belie­ved well into the 19th cen­tu­ry that Bar­entsøya was part of Spits­ber­gen, alt­hough it was occa­sio­nal­ly seen and pro­bab­ly navi­ga­ted as ear­ly as the 17th cen­tu­ry.

Gene­ral: Bar­entsøya (‘Bar­ents-Island’). Land area appro­xi­mate­ly 1300 km2, 50 km long and wide. Named after Wil­lem Bar­ents, the ‘offi­cial’ dis­co­ve­rer of Spits­ber­gen. Bar­entsøya is very simi­lar to Edgeøya; tho­se two islands are sepa­ra­ted by the sce­nic Free­man­sund, which is only a few kilo­me­tres wide. Bar­entsøya is often sur­roun­ded by ice well into the sum­mer. Tog­e­ther with Edgeøya, it is part of the So… Con­ti­nue rea­ding

Farm­ham­na

Trapper-station on Spitsbergen's west coast

Farm­ham­na is situa­ted on Spitsbergen’s west coast, 60 km away from Lon­gye­ar­by­en. It is about 40 km to Bar­ents­burg and 65 km to Ny-Åle­sund. Farm­ham­na is in For­landsund, not far north of Isfjord. The land­s­cape is cha­rac­te­ri­sed by a wide-open coas­tal plain with low rocky hills and tun­dra are­as, litt­le lakes and wet­lands.

Spits­ber­gen

Part 3: Spitsbergen

Spits­ber­gen. Final­ly we had reached Spits­ber­gen, and we still had a cou­p­le of days to explo­re the beau­ty of the fjords on the west coast. Some of the bays were still fro­zen solid and the land is still snow-cove­r­ed. Altog­e­ther, this did not actual­ly incre­a­se our free moving space, but it gave us beau­ti­ful impres­si­ons of the arc­tic win­ter, some­thing you may not in the first place asso­cia­te with ship-based tra­vel­ling in t… Con­ti­nue rea­ding
