Cape Norway (Cape Norvegia) on Jackson Island

Not to be confused with the Cape Norvegia of Antarctica, the Cape Norway of Franz Josef Land’s Jackson Island was the 1895-96 wintering spot of Norwegian explorers Hjalmar Johansen and Fridtjof Nansen when they left their vessel, Fram, after being unable to reach the North Pole. During our Arctic voyages around Franz Josef Land, we aim to visit their hut, which stands to this day.
