Svalbard

You are here: Home  > Norway  > Svalbard

This group of islands is about as remote as you can get. Located well within the Arctic Circle and accessible only by a long flight from either Oslo or Tromsø.

Svalbard offers the traveller an untouched wilderness where the polar bear roam. Activities on Svalbard include sea kayaking, snowmobile expeditions, dog sledging,

It is one of the few places in the world where it is forbidden to leave settled areas without a gun (to defend yourself against polar bears); don’t worry if you don’t have one, you can rent them in Longyearbyen or from the airport!

There are no roads between settled areas on Svalbard, which means that snowmobiles and boats are an essential way to get around. The location and lack of transport infrastructure on the island makes it an expensive place to get around.
