Jan Mayen: Kvalrossbukta
And we landed at Kvalrossbukta, near the isthmus on the middle of the island, wet and a bit rough of a landing but touchdown! Kvalrossbukta is almost a perfect crescent with deep water and pebble beach underneath towering cliffs. Loads of screaming birds up there in the cliffs. Right from the landing, this felt like a foreign planet – only two colors black and green and the shapes of the cliffs and rocks are all otherworldly. Climbing steeply up above the Kvalrossbukta is a viewpoint offering stunning panoramic views down over the whole area.
