American geologist William E. Davies called the wider range north of J.P. Koch Fjord and Frederick E. Hyde Fjord the "Nansen-Jensen Alps", with the westernmost foothills in Nansen Land, stretching past the De Long Fjord area across Roosevelt Land and the Roosevelt Range, and reaching all the way to Johannes V. Jensen Land in the east.
Nansen Land is located to the northeast of Freuchen Land, east of Sverdrup Island, and west of West Jensen Island and Amundsen Land. The westernmost headland is Cape Payer and the northernmost headland is Cape Mohn, the northern end of an island at the entrance of De Long Fjord, separated from Nansen Land by a narrow sound.
The peninsula is bounded to the west by the Mascart Sound, to the southwest by the J.P. Koch Fjord and to the east by the Brainard Sound ( ) and Thomas Thomsen Fjord, a branch of the De Long Fjord system. The peninsula is cut by faults roughly from east to west. To the southeast lies the Hans Tausen Ice Cap and to the south the Sirius Pass, a broad valley connecting J.P. Koch Fjord in the west and Brainard Sound in the east in the area where the peninsula is attached to the mainland and its ice cap.
Northwestern Nansen Land is deeply indented on its Lincoln Sea shore. The main indentations are Jewell Fjord and Gardiner Fjord. The interior is mountainous and partly glaciated. Elevations reaching 1,320 metres (4,331 ft) are found in the central part of the peninsula.
