Landscape, Svalbard - 1

Svalbard / Spitsbergen pictures, travel in the Arctic

The sheltered bay of Fleur de Lyshamna at the entrance of Van Keulenfjorden. This is a bay that was the site of a Beluga whale fishery in the 1930's, when whales came into the bay a seine net was rowed out by boats and then hauled in.

The cabin belongs to the governor of Svalbard, which means it's a sort of police station rather than a holiday home.
