Murchisonfjord: Indre Russeøya

360° panorama image

Ind­re Rus­seøya is smal­ler than neigh­bou­ring Søre Rus­seøya, but may­be more varied in terms of land­s­cape fea­tures. It is a bit more struc­tu­red by rocky hills and has some beau­ti­ful bays and lagoons.

The­re are beau­ti­ful view­points on the hills with pan­or­amic views of Murchi­son­fjord and to the ice caps of Nord­aus­t­land on the hori­zon. And if you look clo­se­ly, you may find fos­sil stroma­tho­li­tes which lived during the Neo­pro­ter­o­zoic, 600-700 mil­li­on years ago. Stroma­tho­li­tes were amongst the first orga­nisms to pro­du­ce the free oxy­gen in the atmo­s­phe­re that we rely on today!
