The huge glacier Nordenskiƶldbreen is dominating much of the scenery at the southeastern end of the fjord. It is a 25 km long and 11 km wide glacier debouching into Adolfbukta innermost in Billefjorden, on the divide between Dickson Land and Blinsow Land. The glacier is named after professor Baron Adolf Erik Nordenskiold, 1832-1901, Swedish geologist and Arctic explorer.
