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!
