Silversea Expedition Cruises To Bell Island

Bell Island

The Franz Josef Land archipelago was first spotted by Norwegian sealers in 1865. The climate is severe most of the year with the average summer temperature around 35° F (2° C). Sparsely vegetated by lichens, mosses, and a few species of Arctic flowering plants, islands like Bell Island can be home to mammals including polar bears and the Arctic fox, with the potential for numerous seabird species to be nesting on the island.

Bell Island is located in the western portion of the island chain and is home to the historic hut of explorer Benjamin Leigh Smith, dating back to 1881. In bays and coves around Bell Island it is possible to find not only walrus and seals, but safe anchorage in the lee of frequent winds. The beautifully stark landscape is dominated by the steeply rising 300-meter Glockenberg table-top mountain.
