Day 8 - Hekla Havn (70°27′N 026°15′W)

Hekla Havn is a small sheltered on the south side of Denmark Ø. Carl Ryder’s 1891 – 92 expedition stayed at this location for a winter, and hence the place is named after their ship, Hekla. There are some traces of Inuit settlements, as well as other signs of human settlement (cans, glass, wooden planks etc), and of course, a big hut.


Visited with Hurtigruten on their North East Greenland National Park expedition with the MV Fram. The scenery was breathtaking, but the 'expedition team' on the cruise was the worst. DON'T go to Iceland/Greenland/Spitsbergen with Hurtigruten.
