The archipelago of Svalbard, only 600 miles from the North Pole, is without doubt one of the most beautiful places on this earth. Steeped in a fascinating history, these lands are packed with wildlife from polar bears, to walruses, seals, arctic fox, eider ducks, reindeer & ptarmigan.To explore by snowmobile and dog sled is an unimaginable privilege. Journey to a working coal mining city; visit an abandoned Russian mining town; snowmobile over the mountains to the disused Isfjord Radio communications base and stay overnight in great comfort. Or camp under the stars and be awe-struck by the northern lights and a million stars. Whatever you decide, Svalbard is the stuff of dreams….and perhaps the most memorable travel experience you will ever have.
