Edgeoya - Svalbard, Norway Highlights:
Kapp Lee, Diskobukta, Whalebones, birds
Edgeoya is one of the larger islands of the Svalbard archipelago lying to the east of Spitsbergen. Land at Dolerittneset near Kapp Lee and see a noticeable change to the relatively lush vegetation "south of 79". This site has a large scattering of reindeer antlers, but the plethora of ancient whalebones makes the landing memorable. Some 400 years ago, whales were once slaughtered here having been hunted almost to extinction in the waters of Svalbard. Now nature has sculptured them into works of art, painted with luxuriant blankets of green mosses and grasses, spattered with blotches of black and orange lichen, and framed with purple saxifrage, yellow cinquefoil, and white sandwort.

Diskobukta affords a landing site with a box canyon, where black-legged kittiwakes raise their young. Arctic fox have been seen combing the canyon floor to feed on scraps that have fallen from the nests above. Watch for bones of ancient bowhead whales on the canyon floor - evidence that the shoreline has changed over millennia.
