With their endless glaciers and towering mountains, Albert I's land and Haakon VII's land are among the most beautiful areas in Svalbard.

Cross Bay (Krossfjorden) and Magdalenefjorden are two tourist destinations of cruising boats in Svalbard.
Danskøya Island was the starting point of the expedition to the North Pole in balloon of Andrée.

Smeerenburg on Amsterdamøya Island was a settlement of Dutch whalers in the 17th century.

Situated after the 80° latitude line, Moffen is a very important haul-out (resting) area for walrus and an important nesting site for birds.


Ny Friesland is the most frozen area of Spitsbergen (Åsgärd's cap), also the least attended and the least charted.
