Horntvedt Glacier (54°25′S 3°21′E / 54.417°S 3.350°E / -54.417; 3.350Coordinates: 54°25′S 3°21′E / 54.417°S 3.350°E / -54.417; 3.350) is a small glacier flowing to the north coast of Bouvetøya, immediately east of Cape Circoncision. It was first charted in 1898 by a German expedition under Karl Chun, and recharted in December 1927 by a Norwegian expedition which named it for Harald Horntvedt, the captain of the expedition ship Norvegia.[1]
