What is SVALBARD? (More Polar Bears than People!)

► INSTAGRAM? Join me @drewbinsky!

I have just arrived in SVALBARD, Northern Norway. It's the northernmost inhabited place on earth, with more polar bears than residents. In the summer months, like right now, the sun brightens up the sky 24 hours a day, and in the wintertime, it's exactly the opposite.

I'm here a few days early before our Hurtigruten expedition sailing kicks off to Eastern Greenland and Iceland! Stay tuned for some fascinating stories about the people, culture, wildlife and nature from the Arctic over the coming 2 weeks!

Just curious, how many of you guys have actually heard of Svalbard before?

Dare To Travel – 26-Year-Old Singaporean Living in the High Arctic in Svalbard, Norway

My family and friends thought I was crazy when I wanted to move up to the Arctic at 78° north.

Meet Wei Si, a spunky 26-year-old currently living in the Arctic Longyearbyen in Svalbard, Norway — the northernmost town in the world! Away from family and friends, she shares with us why she moved from tropical Singapore, and what it's like living in a town with more polar bears than people.

Norway (/ˈnɔːrweɪ/ (About this sound listen) NAWR-way; Norwegian: About this sound Norge (Bokmål) or About this sound Noreg (Nynorsk)),[10] officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign state and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the remote island of Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.[note 1] The Antarctic Peter I Island and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island are dependent territories and thus not considered part of the Kingdom. Norway also lays claim to a section of Antarctica known as Queen Maud Land. Until 1814, the kingdom included the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland. It also included Bohuslän until 1658, Jämtland and Härjedalen until 1645, Shetland and Orkney until 1468, and the Hebrides and Isle of Man until 1266.

Norway has a total area of 385,252 square kilometres (148,747 sq mi) and a population of 5,258,317 (as of January 2017).[12] The country shares a long eastern border with Sweden (1,619 km or 1,006 mi long). Norway is bordered by Finland and Russia to the north-east, and the Skagerrak strait to the south, with Denmark on the other side. Norway has an extensive coastline, facing the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea.

King Harald V of the Dano-German House of Glücksburg is the current King of Norway. Erna Solberg became Prime Minister in 2013, replacing Jens Stoltenberg. A constitutional monarchy, Norway divides state power between the Parliament, the Cabinet and the Supreme Court, as determined by the 1814 Constitution. The kingdom is established as a merger of several petty kingdoms. By the traditional count from the year 872, the kingdom has existed continuously for 1,144 years, and the list of Norwegian monarchs includes over sixty kings and earls.

Norway has both administrative and political subdivisions on two levels: counties and municipalities. The Sámi people have a certain amount of self-determination and influence over traditional territories through the Sámi Parliament and the Finnmark Act. Norway maintains close ties with the European Union and the United States. Norway is a founding member of the United Nations, NATO, the Council of Europe, the Antarctic Treaty, and the Nordic Council; a member of the European Economic Area, the WTO, and the OECD; and is also a part of the Schengen Area.

The country maintains a combination of market economy and a Nordic welfare model with universal health care and a comprehensive social security system. Norway has extensive reserves of petroleum, natural gas, minerals, lumber, seafood, fresh water, and hydropower. The petroleum industry accounts for around a quarter of the country's gross domestic product (GDP).[13] On a per-capita basis, Norway is the world's largest producer of oil and natural gas outside the Middle East.[14][15]

The country has the fourth-highest per capita income in the world on the World Bank and IMF lists.[16] On the CIA's GDP (PPP) per capita list (2015 estimate) which includes territories and some regions, Norway ranks as number eleven.[17] It has the world's largest sovereign wealth fund, with a value of 960 billion USD.[18] Since 2009, Norway has the highest Human Development Index ranking in the world, a position also held previously between 2001 and 2006.[19] It also has the highest inequality-adjusted ranking.[20][21][22] Norway ranks first on the World Happiness Report,[23] the OECD Better Life Index, the Index of Public Integrity, and the Democracy Index.[24]

Svalbard and Jan Mayen Drone Flight: Longyearbyen is a small coal-mining town on Spitsbergen Island, in Norways Svalbard archipelago. This Arctic town is known for its views of the Northern Lights. The modern Svalbard Museum chronicles the regions natural and cultural history. It includes a stuffed polar bear. Live bears can occasionally be seen in the area. The North Pole Expeditions Museum recounts early efforts to reach the pole by air. Longyearbyen is on Adventfjorden Bay, which can be crossed by boat to reach Hiorthfjellet Mountains trails. Nearby, the Gruve 3 coal mine depicts Svalbards mining history. The underground Svalbard Global Seed Vault preserves backups of the worlds seeds in the name of food security. Husky-dog sleds and snowmobiles set off from Longyearbyen for trips farther afield to places like Isfjord Radio, a former transmission station with views overlooking the Arctic Ocean. Boat trips with fishing are also possible, reaching destinations like the walrus colony on the island of Prins Karls Forland.Svalbard and Jan Mayen is a statistical designation defined by ISO 3166-1 of two parts of Norway under separate jurisdictions—Svalbard and Jan Mayen. While the two are combined for the purposes of the International Organization for Standardization category, they are not administratively related. This has further resulted in the country code top-level domain .sj being issued for Svalbard and Jan Mayen, and ISO 3166-2:SJ. The United Nations Statistics Division also uses this code, but has named it Svalbard and Jan Mayen Islands. Svalbard is an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean under the full sovereignty of Norway, but is subject to the special status granted by the Svalbard Treaty. Jan Mayen is a remote island in the Arctic Ocean; it has no permanent population and is administrated by the County Governor of Nordland. Svalbard and Jan Mayen have in common that they are the only integrated parts of Norway not allocated to counties. While a separate ISO code for Svalbard was proposed by the United Nations, it was the Norwegian authorities who took initiative to include Jan Mayen in the code. Its official language is Norwegian. // [Source: wikipedia // Google]

Melihat Keunikan Svalbard di Norwegia, Populasi Beruang Kutub Lebih Banyak dari Manusia

TRIBUN-VIDEO.COM - Kalau traveler ingin menikmati dinginnya Kutub Utara bisa mengunjungi Svalbard.

Svalbard berada di 800 kilometer di utara Norwegia.

Letaknya berada di tengah Samudera Arktik.

Ibu kota Svalbard, Longyearbyen memiliki penduduk dari 50 negara yang merupakan imigran.

Melansir Kompas.com, semua orang bebas tinggal di Svalbard tanpa visa selama mempunyai pekerjaan dan tempat tinggal.


Meski diyakini dijelajahi pertama oleh orang Viking, bangsa Belanda melakukan kunjungan pertama di pulau ini.

Dulunya tempat ini adalah tambang batu bara.

Namun, saat ini aktivitas utama di Svalbard adalah pariwisata.

Pulau ini sebenarnya adalah zona internasional namun dikelola oleh Norwegia.

Dalam sebuah perjanjian, ada klausa untuk tidak mendiskriminasi orang Norwegia atau bukan Norwegia.

Ibu kota Svalbard, Longyearbyen menjadi tempat banyak orang tinggal.

Hanya ada jalan 40 Km di pulau tersebut.

Setiap orang yang tinggal di kawasan tersebut membawa senapan untuk menghindari dari beruang kutup.

Jumlah penduduknya hanya 2.926 jiwa sedangkan beruang kutub di kepulauan tersebut ada 3.000.

Kondisi Svalbard

Svalbard sendiri bukan tempat yang paling ideal.

Tidak ada rumah sakit untuk wanita hamil dan jika ada seseorang yang meninggal, pemerintah daerah mengharuskan jenazah untuk dikirim ke daratan Norwegia.

Sebab, penguburan tidak diizinkan untuk dilakukan di kepulauan ini sejak tahun 1950 karena permafrost atau lapisan tanah yang tebal benar-benar membeku di kepulauan ini sepanjang tahun.

Kondisi tersebut mengakibatkan lapisan ini tidak hanya mengawetkan tubuh tetapi juga terkadang mendorong jenazah keluar jika tidak dikubur cukup dalam.

Permafrost Svalbard dan suhu rendah sepanjang tahun yang dimilikinya juga terbukti ideal untuk memasang Global Seed Vault, sekitar 3 kilometer dari jalan utama Longyearbyen.

Nordic Series Chapter 5: Adventure of a Lifetime (Svalbard)

Iceland was my most remote place to visit. But now, Svalbard and Jan Mayen takes the 1st spot. Svalbard is the place where polar bear is more than human. There are about 3,000 polar bears while human population is just around 2,500. 78 degree North high up the latitude, close to the North Pole, raw Arctic tundra, 60% of Svalbard covered by glaciers, majestic mountains, blue sea ice, animals like polar bear to walrus to seal to polar fox, the cold breeze & extreme weather and the total wilderness make Svalbard is on a whole nother level. An adventure of a lifetime I’d say.

I’ve been to Iceland 2x and Norway 3x, so I’m guessing my recent trip to Svalbard was my last trip to Norway. I always love be in the Nordic region especially in the northern hemisphere. I feel a sense of belonging there. I love everything about Iceland & Norway; the nature, landscape, northern lights, weather, wildlife, people etc. But I guess its time to bid farewell. Nevertheless, you’re always have a special place in my heart.
*a few years later* Let’s go to Iceland & Norway again haha ???? Goodbye for now!

Top 10 Most Dangerous Airports

Thanks for watching......
1)Tenzing-Hillary Airport, Nepal -
2) Kansai International Airport, Osaka, Japan -
3) Gibraltar International Airport -
4) Madeira International Airport, Madeira, Portugal -
5) Ice Runway, Antarctica -

An airport is a location where aircraft such as fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, and blimps take off and land. Aircraft may be stored or maintained at an airport. An airport consists of at least one surface such as a runway for a plane to take off and land, a helipad, or water for takeoffs and landings, and often includes buildings such as control towers, hangars and terminal buildings.

Larger airports may have fixed base operator services, seaplane docks and ramps, air traffic control, passenger facilities such as restaurants and lounges, and emergency services. A military airport, in the US, is known as an airbase or air station.

A seaplane base is an area of open water used regularly by seaplanes or amphibious aircraft for landing and taking off.

The terms aerodrome, airfield, and airstrip may also be used to refer to airports, and the terms heliport, seaplane base, and STOLport refer to airports dedicated exclusively to helicopters, seaplanes, or short take-off and landing aircraft.

In colloquial use, the terms airport and aerodrome are often interchanged. However, in general, the term airport may imply or confer a certain stature upon the aviation facility that an aerodrome may not have achieved. In some jurisdictions, airport is a legal term of art reserved exclusively for those aerodromes certified or licensed as airports by the relevant national aviation authority after meeting specified certification criteria or regulatory requirements.

That is to say, all airports are aerodromes, but not all aerodromes are airports. In jurisdictions where there is no legal distinction between aerodrome and airport, which term to use in the name of an aerodrome may be a commercial decision.
