Ocean Ports of Call

Barentsoya - Svalbard, Norway Highlights:
Whalebones, birds, Sundneset
Barentsoya is one of the larger islands of the Svalbard archipelago lying to the east of Spitsbergen. On its southern shore lies Sundneset where you may have theopportunity to land. Here you will find fantastic flora, fauna and scenery. It's not unusual to have a close encounter with reindeer. There are often long-tailed ducks and red-throated divers on the ponds in the area as well as pink-footed geese, snow buntings and purple sandpipers. Very old whalebones are also found here, hundreds of metres inland, which help explain the theory of isostatic rebound (when land springs up after the weight of glaciation has disappeared). There is also a good variety of birds including Long-tailed Ducks, Red-throated Loons, Pink-footed Geese and Purple Sandpipers
