Norway - Svalbard (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

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.

  • transport
  • hang with the huskies on a winter dog-sledding expedition
