Trapping station Villa Fredheim, Sassenfjord

Fra Wikipedia: Hilmar Nøis (født 8. mars 1891 på Andøya, død 16. desember 1975 på Andøya) var en norsk fangstmann. Mellom 1909 og 1963 hadde han 38 overvintringer på Svalbard. Han bygde fangststasjonen «Villa Fredheim» i Sassendalen på Svalbard, hvor han overvintret 19 ganger. Dessuten overvintret han ytterligere 6 sesonger i "Danielbua". Villa Fredheim er en av de mest kjente norske fangststasjonene. Nøis bygde også flere andre fangststasjoner. Hilmar Nøis fangstet over hele det nordlige Svalbard, og hadde hovedstasjoner på Roosneset, Gråhuken, Krosspynten. Dessuten brukte han sin bistasjon i Bjonahamn som hovedstasjon under vanskelige værforhold. I Storfjorden benyttet han Dunerbukta som hovedstasjon. Han bygde og reparerte om lag 40 hytter og brukte ytterligere ca. 20. Hyttenettet var for å rekke størst mulig terreng. I vintersesongen hadde han opp mot 400 revefeller i sving. Nøis har oppgitt å ha bygd omlag 2 700 revefeller i løpet av sine overvintringer, og skutt minst 300 isbjørner.

More About Svalbard

Svalbard is an archipelago in the Arctic, constituting the northernmost part of Norway.The islands were first utilized as a whaling base in the 17th and 18th centuries, after which they were abandoned. Coal mining started at the beginning of the 20th century, and several permanent communities were established. The Spitsbergen Treaty of 1920 recognizes Norwegian sovereignty, and the 1925 Svalbard Act made Svalbard a full part of the Kingdom of Norway. This act also established Svalbard as a free economic zone and a demilitarized zone. The Norwegian Store Norske and the Russian Arktikugol are the only mining companies remaining on the islands. Research and tourism have become important supplementary industries. Two major research facilities are the University Centre in Svalbard and the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. No roads connect the settlements; instead snowmobiles, aircraft and boats serve inter-community transport. Svalbard Airport, Longyear serves as the main gateway to the rest of Europe.The archipelago features an Arctic climate, although with significantly higher temperatures than other areas at the same latitude. The flora take advantage of the long period of midnight sun to compensate for the polar night. Svalbard is a breeding ground for many seabirds, and also features polar bears, reindeer and marine mammals. Seven national parks and twenty-three nature reserves cover two-thirds of the archipelago, protecting the largely untouched, yet fragile, nature. Sixty percent of the archipelago is glacier, and the islands feature many mountains and fjords.source: wikipedia
