Bellsund is a 20 km long sound on the SW coast of the island Spitsbergen, part of the Svalbard Archipelago in northern Norway. It borders the Arctic Ocean, the Norwegian Sea, and the Greenland Sea. The Geographic North Pole is 1400 km to the north and Arctic Circle 1180 km to the south. Excpect to see the Midnight Sun high in the sky. Two fjords enter the sound – Van Mijenfjorden and Van Keulenfjorden. It is separated from Van Mijenfjorden by the islands of Akseløya and Mariaholmen. Bellsund was first seen by the Dutch explorer William Barents in 1596. Whalers sporadically visited from the early 1600s.

The Sound (larger than a bay or fjord) is nestled between mountains close by to nearly 1000 m. Rock formations in the cliffs show clearly the geographical record of the island. There are large bird cliffs in the area. Fertilization by seabird droppings accounts for the surprisingly lush tundra vegetation in some areas. The tundra itself plays host to Arctic foxes and herds of reindeer, and polar bears are known to cross the area as they hunt about for food. Mining also arrive in the early 1900s, but the trial mines didn’t pay their way and the mining explorations were abandoned (the ruins of which can still be seen today).
