Adriabukta (Hornsund)

Hornsund: Adriabukta

In Adriabukta, next to the peninsula Treskelen, there is another old trapper’s cabin. This was the one deepest in the fjord in the days of polar bear hunting. The hut is rather small and starting to show signs of deterioration. It was built early in the 20th century and used by some famous trappers such the female polar bear hunter Wanny Woldstad, who wintered several times in the 1930s. The “main station” was in Hyttevika on the west coast north of Hornsund; this small hut in Adriabukta was only occasionally used during hunting trips.

Today, it is occasionally used by scientists from the Polish research station in Isbjørnhamna, further west in Hornsund.
