Bellsund is one of Spitsbergen’s largest fjord systems. It has three main branches: The relatively small Recherchefjord is situated on its southern side, while the two larger inlets Van Keulenfjord and Van Mijenfjord are cutting deeply into central parts of Spitsbergen, offering a splendid geological cross-section from the strongly folded west coast deep into the Central Tertiary Basin. The whole area has a lot to offer, not only in terms of geology, but also regarding scenic beauty and historical interest.
