Svalbard is surrounded by magnificent nature and a silence you’ve never experienced before. With its long valleys, tall and steep mountains and enormous glaciers, this place truly give the sense of being in an untouched and ancient part of the world. A place where the light and darkness alternates throughout the year. The midnight sun shines from april until august and throughout this period you will see a bustling wildlife. In October the sun disappears under the horizon, not to come back until March. During the dark period, the only light you will see is the northern light, the stars and the moonlight, which lights up the snow covered tundra. The Longyearbyen (“the Longyear town”), the main settlement of Svalbard is situated on the biggest island f Svalbard, called Spitsbergen, with 2500 residents. This is where we will stay.
