Norway - Svalbard (Chapter)
This is the Svalbard chapter from Lonely Planet’s Norway guidebook.
Svalbard is the Arctic North as you always dreamed it existed. This wondrous archipelago is a land of dramatic snow-drowned peaks and glaciers, of vast icefields and forbidding icebergs, an elemental place where the seemingly endless Arctic night and the perpetual sunlight of summer carry a deeper kind of magic.
- explore the Arctic wilderness by hiking under the midnight sun
- travel into the fjords of inner Svalbard with a boat trip to Pyramiden and the Nordenskjöldbreen glacier
- restaurants & accommodation
- experience the polar silence like the explorers of old on a winter dog-sledding expedition
Coverage includes: Longyearbyen & around, Barentsburg, Pyramiden, Ny Ålesund & around, Magdalenefjord, Prins Karls Forlandet, Krossfjorden, Danskøya and Moffen Island.
