Jan Mayen is an Arctic Island, located northeast of Iceland in the Norwegian Sea. The entire northeastern end of the island is Beerenberg, a huge volcanic cone, thirty miles in circumference. Fifteen glaciers flow from the summit to the sea, creating a giant white mass of mountain and ice. The mountain is frequently veiled by fog, but occasionally it mysteriously and suddenly appears to seafaring passersby. Severe weather is Beerenberg's worst hazard. Otherwise it is a moderately easy glacier climb.
