HOW EXPENSIVE IS SVALBARD? | Cost of groceries and food in Longyearbyen Coop

For this week's vlog, we thought it would be helpful to take you around the biggest supermarket in Longyearbyen, Svalbard. Surprisingly, I found that Svalbard cost of living (at least the supermarket food prices) are not that expensive.

From produce prices, Svalbard alcohol and beer, to the bread and whale meat, Co-op Svalbard has it all. And even better, they have a locker to store your polar bear rifle if you need it!

Don't forget to check out our other Svalbard vlogs!

If you are looking for Svalbard accommodations, here's our ultimate list of hotels in Svalbard:

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]

Longyearbyen in Svalbard, Norway - The world's northernmost city

This Is Longyearbyen: The World’s Northernmost Town. Up here in the High Arctic, the 2,300 residents of Longyearbyen share their home with polar bears and go without sunlight for five months of the year.

Longyearbyen is the largest settlement and the administrative centre of Svalbard, Norway. As of August 2019, the town had a population of 2,368. The town is the seat of the Governor of Svalbard. It is the world's northernmost settlement of any kind with more than 1,000 permanent residents. Since 2015, it has been governed by Mayor Arild Olsen.

Known as Longyear City until 1926, the town was established by and named after American John Munro Longyear, whose Arctic Coal Company started coal mining operations there in 1906. Historically, Longyearbyen was a company town, but most mining operations moved to Sveagruva during the 1990s, and production ceased in 2017 due to immense financial losses suffered by SNSK since 2014 due to market conditions.Now the town has seen a large increase in tourism and research. This includes the arrival of institutions such as the University Centre in Svalbard, the Svalbard Global Seed Vault and Svalbard Satellite Station. The community is served by Svalbard Airport and Svalbard Church.

Europe Drone Flight: Europe is a continent located entirely in the Northern Hemisphere and mostly in the Eastern Hemisphere. It is bordered by the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. It comprises the westernmost part of Eurasia. Since around 1850, Europe is most commonly considered to be separated from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas and the waterways of the Turkish Straits. Although the term continent implies physical geography, the land border is somewhat arbitrary and has moved since its first conception in classical antiquity. The division of Eurasia into two continents reflects East-West cultural, linguistic and ethnic differences, some of which vary on a spectrum rather than with a sharp dividing line. The border does not follow political boundaries, with Turkey, Russia and Kazakhstan being transcontinental countries. Europe covers about 10,180,000 square kilometres, or 2% of the Earths surface.

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]

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!

Svalbard Travel

Svalbard Travel - Svalbard is an archipelago in the Arctic, constituting the northernmost part of Norway. Located north of mainland Europe, it is about midway between mainland Norway and the North Pole. The group of islands range from 74° to 81° north latitude (and thus inside the Arctic Circle), and from 10° to 35° east longitude. Spitsbergen is the largest island, followed by Nordaustlandet and Edgeøya. The administrative centre is Longyearbyen, and other settlements, in addition to research outposts, are the Russian mining community of Barentsburg, the research community of Ny-Ålesund and the mining outpost of Sveagruva. The archipelago is administrated by the Governor of Svalbard.

The islands were first taken into use as a whaling base in the 17th and 18th centuries, after which they were abandoned. Coal mining started at the beginning of the 20th century, and several permanent communities were established. The Spitsbergen Treaty of 1920 recognizes Norwegian sovereignty, and the 1925 Svalbard Act made Svalbard a full part of the Kingdom of Norway. They also established Svalbard as a free economic zone and a demilitarized zone. The Norwegian Store Norske and the Russian Arktikugol remain the only mining companies. Research and tourism have became important supplementary industries, featuring among others the University Centre in Svalbard and the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. No roads connect the settlements; instead snowmobiles, aircraft and boats serve inter-community transport. Svalbard Airport, Longyear serves as the main gateway.

The archipelago features an Arctic climate, although with significantly higher temperatures than other areas at the same latitude. The flora takes advantage of the long period of midnight sun to compensate for the polar night. Svalbard is a breeding ground for many seabirds, and also features polar bears, reindeer and marine mammals. Seven national parks and twenty-three nature reserves cover two-thirds of the archipelago, protecting the largely untouched, yet fragile, nature. Sixty percent of the archipelago is glacier, and the islands feature many mountains and fjords.
Enjoy Your Svalbard Travel!

Spitsbergen Travel

Spitsbergen Travel is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hurtigruten AS and Svalbard's most experienced tour operator and booking agency. Don't hesitate to experience panoramic views over snow-covered glaciers, sunsets over the sea ice, boat trips, organised walks, ski treks, snowmobile safaris, dog sledding, kayaking and much more.

Pyramiden, Svalbard - Soviet Ghost Town in Norway?

Special thank you to Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions and Polar Charter (MS Polargirl) for an awesome experience.

This video includes clips from the MS Polargirl guided tour to Pyramiden and Nordenskiöldbreen glacier in Spitsbergen, Svalbard.

Pyramiden is an abandoned Soviet coal mining town North from Longyearbyen, across the Billefjorden, located at 78o of Latitude, inside the Arctic Circle.

Pyramiden was founded in 1910 by Sweden, before Norway’s sovereignty was established over Svalbard and Jan Mayen. After some years of unsuccessful attempts to mine coal, the land was sold to the Soviet Union in 1927. The town was evacuated in 1941 during World War II, and operations resumed in 1946. The mine was completed in 1956 and at its height in the 1980’s Pyramiden had about 1,000 residents. The mine was shut down in 1998 by the now Russian state-owned Trust Arktikugol, and the town was abandoned.

More recently, in 2008, the town was reopened as a tourist attraction. Pyramiden has only one operational building, the Pyramiden Hotel, where all locals and the hotel staff live. In 2018 Pyramiden was visited by some 36,000 people. The town is a time capsule of the Soviet area, with a Lenin bust overseeing the main boulevard and a monument celebrating the first man in space, Yuri Gagarin.

The Pyramiden Hotel has a coffee and souvenir shop that sells locally brewed beer and Pyramiden vodka. It also sells great souvenirs like Russian nesting dolls and “Back to the USSR” t-shirts :-D

After Pyramiden we take a closer look at the magnificent Nordenskiöldbreen glacier, named after the Finish geologist Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld. Unfortunately, like many glaciers around the globe, Nordenskiöldbreen has been receding and the ice loss rate has increased since the 1990’s. The glacier tongue is beautiful and is one of the top attractions in Svalbard.

Special thank you to the MS Polargirl crew for a memorable tour and the many stories they told us during the day.
