Bouvet Dxpedition News
On December 1, 1927, the expedition landed on Bouvet Island, the first documented landing on the island ever.
The first Norwegian expedition (1927/28) was led by Captain Harald Horntvedt and conducted surveys at South Georgia and on Bouvet Island. The Norwegian flag was planted in the ground and the island was declared Norwegian territory.
The expedition made scientific observations and surveys, and oceanographic observations were made in the sea around the island. A small cabin was built on one of the few disembarkation points and was named Ny Sandefjord.
