Panorama of a trappers' hut, icebergs and glaciers

Spitsbergen’s east coast: Mohn­buk­ta

The land­s­capes on the east coast of Spits­ber­gen are huge and wild, wide and open. Typi­cal are more or less pla­teau-shaped moun­tains and dark rocks, giving the land­s­cape a some­ti­mes even gloo­my appearan­ce. As in most other bays on the east coast (except Agardhbuk­ta), the inland is stron­gly gla­cia­ted and some gla­ciers have cal­ving fronts at the coast.

Many smal­ler ice­bergs with fan­tastic shapes and colours are fro­zen in the fast ice of Mohn­buk­ta. The­se images were taken insi­de an ice­berg that had several old meltwa­ter caves.
