Vedel Islands is a group of small islands lying 3.7 kilometres (2 nmi) west of Hovgaard Island in the Wilhelm Archipelago. The largest island of this group was discovered in 1898 and given the name Vedel by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition under Gerlache. The French Antarctic Expedition under Charcot charted the remaining islands in 1904, and again in 1909, when the name was extended to include the entire group.
