Svalbard Travel Guide

Svalbard or Spitsbergen as it is commonly known is nestled halfway between mainland Norway and the North Pole. The Svalbard archipelago lies between 74 ° - 81° N and 10° - 35° E, covering an area of around 63 000 sq.km, of which 60% is covered by glacier. Sitting north of Norway deep into the Arctic Circle, Svalbard is covered with glaciers, immense sea cliffs and rugged mountains.

Adventure holidays here offer incredible opportunities to see the wildlife, history and stunning geography of this magical Arctic Archipelago. Search for polar bear, arctic foxes, reindeer, walrus, and whales and walk the great colonies of birds that line the Arctic tundra. Svalbard is the place that experiences four months of complete sunshine and four months of darkness in a year. The arctic light is fascinating and unforgettable, whether it is the midnight sun or the polar night.

Svalbard is unspoilt by human footprint offering stunning splendor of an Arctic desert, a landscape as harsh as it is mystifying. A journey around the spectacular Arctic region of Norway's Spitsbergen (Svalbard) Islands offers excitement and an experience of a lifetime.

Experience spectacular scenery, ice-choked fjords and wildlife, all under 24 hours sunshine from April 20 to August 23 in Svalbard. Conversely, December and January are the darkest and coldest months, where literally there is no difference between night and day.
