Haakon VII Toppen is the highest peak of Beerenberg with 2277 m above sea level. Most of Jan Mayen, up to maybe 700 m, is hidden under a cloud cover. Only the highest peaks of Sør Jan, as the southern part of Jan Mayen is called, are visible, and of course the majestic Beerenberg itself. The central crater has a diameter of about 1.5 kilometres and it is filled by a glacier, which is flowing out of the crater to the northwest, forming Weyprechtbreen which is reaching down to the coast and calving into the sea.
This panorama was done freehand on June 21st, 2015, during the first ascent of Beerenberg by anyone not working at the station after 2011, when the rules were tightened. As far as I know, it is the first 360 degree panorama taken on the top of Beerenberg.
I have prepared many panoramas for Rolf Stange websites. This one is one of the very special ones. I hope you like it as much as I do. As of today, it is also commentable. On the other Rolf Stange websites there are many more panoramas and pano tours (to Spitsbergen and Antarctica).
