Description

Skansbukta is a unique bay at the beginning of Billefjorden, a branch of Isfjorden. The flat beach area is surrounded on three sides by soaring cliffs of the Skansen mountain, protecting the place from wind and cold. Thanks to this location, like in the centre of Isfjorden, thermophilic vegetation dominates here. Its example is the northern Jacob’s-ladder, rarely found elsewhere.
