Highlights

  • Marvel at the icy grandeur of towering cliffs, frozen mountains, massive glaciers and snow white fjords around Spitsbergen.
  • Catch a glimpse of polar bears, beached walruses, lounging seals and grazing reindeers in the untouched Arctic wilderness.
  • Be greeted by the raucous chattering of Arctic terns and common eiders perched high up on the 14th of July Glacier.
  • Explore the historic Svalbard Museum and the impressive art gallery of Longyearbyen.
  • Visit the northernmost civilian town in the world, Ny Alesund.

Tips

  • Consider visiting the country in winter especially if you’re interested in exploring glaciers or if you want to go snowshoeing.
  • Cover up to protect yourself against frostbite as it can affect your nose, cheeks, toes and fingers in low temperatures.
  • The weather can be extreme and can change very fast so keep an eye on forecasts and avalanche reports.
  • There is a very real danger of being attacked by polar bears so stay with your group and follow your guide’s instructions.
  • Avoid camping on the beach as polar bears look for food on the shorelines.
  • Be careful not to get too close to the nesting grounds of protective Arctic terns as they may attack.
  • There are restrictions on where snow-mobiles are allowed to go so check with your guide before you decide to rent one.
  • Avoid taking photographs in mines as it is prohibited.
