Norway - Svalbard (Chapter)
This is the Svalbard chapter from Lonely Planet’s Norway guidebook.
Svalbard’s main settlement and entry point, Longyearbyen, is merely a taste of what lies beyond and the possibilities for exploring further are many: boat trips, glacier hikes, and expeditions by snowmobile or led by a team of huskies. Whichever you choose, coming here is like crossing some remote frontier of the mind: Svalbard is as close as most mortals can get to the North Pole and still capture its spirit.
- immerse yourself in the Arctic wilderness, hiking under the midnight sun
- head into the fjords of inner Svalbard with a boat trip to the Nordenskjöldbreen glacier
- hang with the huskies on a winter dog-sledding expedition
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Longyearbyen & around, Barentsburg, Pyramiden, Ny Ålesund & around, Magdalenefjord, Prins Karls Forlandet, Krossfjorden, Danskøya, Moffen Island.
