Set high in the Arctic Ocean is the remote and untouched Svalbard archipelago, covering an area roughly the size of Ireland and is dominated by the island of Spitsbergen. Not as cold or as inaccessible as people might think, Spitsbergen offers the adventurous visitor a truly Arctic experience, on the edge of the inhabitable world
The Svalbard archipelago extends between 74 and 81° North, and is the farthest north people can visit by means of a scheduled flight.
The island is rich in minerals, particularly coal, and visitors can travel to settlements rich in mining history and still involved today. The fishing and whaling industry of the past have also left their mark and remnants can be found and photographed in many locations - the message is always the same however; visitors may look but not touch!
For most visitors, Spitsbergen offers a wide choice of sailing itineraries that will take you to some of the world's most spectacular scenery, and offer a glimpse of rare Arctic flora and fauna.
