Spitsbergen (Longyearbyen), Norway-port

Adventure into the surreal landscape of Longyearben, with its stark towering glacier tongues and colorful wooden houses. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the magnificent rock formations and colorful plant life. Be on the lookout for seals, walruses, and whales swimming off the coast and polar bears roaming close by. A visit to the Russian Orthodox Church is worthwhile, and as a hub for international musicians and artists, you may find a concert or exhibition coinciding with your visit. Browse through the shops, and dine at one of the many elegant International restaurants, perhaps exploring the fresh Arctic cuisine.

    The archipelago of Svalbard is governed by the kingdom of Norway and is situated between 74 and 81 northern, and 10 and 35 eastern latitudes. The islands are cut through by deep fjords and towering mountains; with the interior consisting of large glaciers. The geological conditions here are fascinating and all formations from the Pre-Cambium period and onwards can be found.

    The Norwegians and Russians are the only ones that carry out coal mining on the island and the large coal-layers date mainly from the Tertiary Era. The fauna and flora are unexpectedly rich and wildlife here includes reindeer, polar fox, walrus, seals and polar bears. There are no trees, but surprisingly, many colorful flowers can be found here, all of which are under protection by law.

    Boarding your coach at the pier, you will commence your tour with a drive to the Adventdalen Valley and the Dog Farm, where you will learn about the different types of Polar dogs and how they helped during the earlier exploration of the Polar Region. Here, you will have the opportunity to observe the friendly Artic dogs and perhaps play with the puppies, which is important for their socializing and training. After your time with the dogs, you will retreat to a warm turf hut, where you can gather around the fireplace for coffee and cake and talk with your hosts about the life in the Artic and how it is to live up here year-round.

    Following your visit, you will transfer back to Longyearbyen and the pier.
