Fairhaven (Svalbard)

Fairhaven (Svalbard)

Fairhaven is an area of Norway. Generally speaking, it is the area between Amsterdamøya and Danskøya and the mainland, while specifically it refers to the sound between Danskøya and the mainland (Albert I Land), in particular the strait between Moseøya and Danskøya. The modern name for this area is Smeerenburgfjorden (a modern blunder, as Smeerenburg was only a settlement).

The fjord is 20 km long and 4 km wide.
