Blomstrandhalvøya: Irgensfjellet

360° panoramas

Irgens­fjel­let is an ele­va­ti­on of 385 met­res and thus the hig­hest “moun­tain” on Blom­strand­hal­vøya in Kongsfjord. The ele­va­ti­on is of cour­se mode­st, but the view is nevert­hel­ess impres­siv. Kongsfjord is famous for the sce­n­ery, and on a nice day with good wea­ther, the pan­ora­ma is abso­lut­e­ly glo­rious!

The view is espe­ci­al­ly good to the north. You can see Blom­strand­ham­na with seve­ral small islands (bird reser­ves!) and the gla­cier Blom­strand­breen. This gla­cier con­nec­ted Blom­strand­hal­vøya to main­land Spits­ber­gen until it retrea­ted in the late 1980s. This explains the name: “hal­vøya” means pen­in­su­la. The name is still used, altough Blom­strand­hal­vøya is cle­ar­ly an island today.
