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?

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!

My four nights stay in Svalbard during the month of June '19. I was able to experience the polar summer for the first time. Svalbard is actually a Norwegian archipelago between the mainland Norway and the North Pole at 78 degree N. The midnight sun is the highlight of the area during this phase. I had booked a boat cruise during my stay to visit the abandoned town owned by Russia, Pyramiden. The Nordenskiöld glacier proved to be a unique spot for spotting polar bears and seals. Dog Sledding although more prominent during the winter ice and snow, it was worth a try on wagon wheel carts to get the gist of it. I also managed to book a separate tour in the coal mines where the guide gave us a very informative session on explaining how the coal mining work was typically carried out in Longyearbyen. A quick visit to the Svalbard museum helped me to gather some insight on the 400 year old history of the settlement along with types of plants and animals that existed there. The video has been updated to include chapters as of 12/8/2020

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]

Jan Mayen – a Norwegian island with an active volcano in the Arctic
Jan Mayen is a Norwegian volcanic island situated in the Arctic Ocean, partly covered by glaciers around the Beerenberg volcano. The Beerenberg is the world's northernmost active volcano over sea level. Norway built on Jan Mayen a meteorological observatory and a radio station, and in 1929 annexed the island. The main settlement on the island is Olonkinbyen, located a few kilometres away from the radio and the meteorological station.

Du lịch Na Uy ???????? - Top 10 Địa Điểm | Du lịch Châu Âu #nauy
Na Uy, tên chính thức là Vương quốc Na Uy, là một quốc gia ở Bắc Âu nằm ở Tây Bắc Châu Âu có lãnh thổ bao gồm phần phía tây và cực bắc của Bán đảo Scandinavi; bao gồm đảo Jan Mayen và quần đảo Svalbard là 2 lãnh thổ nằm rất xa về phía Bắc Cực, lãnh thổ phụ thuộc: đảo Bouvet nằm ở khu vực Subantartic. Na Uy cũng tuyên bố chủ quyền lãnh thổ với hai hòn đảo Peter I và Queen Maud Land tại châu Nam Cực.
Na Uy có tổng diện tích là 385.207 km2 và dân số là 5,385,300 (2020). Đất nước này có chung biên giới phía đông với Thụy Điển, giáp Phần Lan và Nga ở phía đông bắc. Eo biển Skagerrak ở phía nam nối Na Uy với Đan Mạch. Na Uy có đường bờ biển dài, hướng ra Bắc Đại Tây Dương và biển Barents. Chính đại dương khiến Na Uy có khí hậu vùng đất thấp êm dịu, bớt lạnh hơn nhiều so với các quốc gia ở vùng vĩ độ bắc tương tự. Ngay cả vào những đêm vùng cực, nhiệt độ thông thường vẫn trên mức đóng băng. Đại dương cũng mang lại lượng mưa và lượng tuyết rơi lớn ở nhiều vùng.
Đây là một trong những quốc gia có mức sống cao nhất trên thế giới và cũng là một trong những nước hạnh phúc nhất thế giới.

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!

When staying in Svalbard, comfortable accommodation is a must. Temperatures outside the summer season can be bitterly cold and after a day of adventure, retreating to a cozy environment is absolutely worth the money.
2,000 km away from the North Pole - North Cape, 71° North | Hurtigruten
00:00:18 to skip Intro
At Honningsvåg we were picked up by a bus, who brought us comfortable through the snow to the North Cape. We rushed to the monument to get a nice shot before everything was crowed and disappeared in the snow. Back on board we were served a 5 course meal ahead of New Year. The countdown we enjoyed at the top deck and welcomed 2019 with a glass of Champagne.
After our last breakfast on board of MS Polarlys we disembarked at Kirkenes, where we arranged a visit to the Snow Hotel before going to the Airport. Finally after 8 hours of waiting at Kirkenes Airport, we departure on time to Oslo with SAS.

Background Information: MS Polarlys is a Hurtigruten vessel built by Ulstein Verft in Ulstein, Norway in 1996. It is named after the Aurora polaris and is the third Hurtigruten vessel to bear the name after this phenomenon. Hurtigruten (Express Route, also known as the Norwegian Coastal Express) is a Norwegian cruise, ferry and cargo operator. The company was founded in 1893 to operate voyages on Norway's western and northern coast between Bergen and Kirkenes. Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a Nordic country in Northwestern Europe whose territory comprises the western and northernmost portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula; the remote island of Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard are also part of the Kingdom of Norway. Classic Voyage North: Hurtigruten´s northbound journey from Bergen to Kirkenes is rich in cultural exploration opportunities. We visit major coastal cities and tiny remote villages, and travel far beyond the Arctic Circle. North Cape is a cape on the northern coast of the island of Magerøya in Northern Norway. The North Cape plateau puts you at 71°10'21´N, only 2,000 km away from the geographic North Pole. Standing on top the 307-metre high North Cape plateau imparts a sublime sense of being at the end of the world. Nearby is one of the world's most exciting nature reserves, Gjesværstappan

Norway officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a Nordic country in Northern Europe whose mainland territory comprises the western and northernmost portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula. The remote Arctic island of Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard also form part of Norway.Bouvet Island, located in the Subantarctic, is a dependency of Norway; it also lays claims to the Antarctic territories of Peter I Island and Queen Maud Land.
Norway has a total area of 385,207 square kilometres (148,729 sq mi) and had a population of 5,385,300 in November 2020.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. The maritime influence also dominates Norway's climate with mild lowland temperatures on the sea coasts, whereas the interior, while colder, is also a lot milder than areas elsewhere in the world on such northerly latitudes. Even during polar night in the north, temperatures above freezing are commonplace on the coastline. The maritime influence brings high rainfall and snowfall to some areas of the country.

About Longyearbyen: 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 (Urban East Norwegian: ˈlɔ̀ŋjiːrˌbyːən; The Longyear Town) is the worlds northernmost settlement (with population greater than 1,000) and largest inhabited area of Svalbard, Norway. It stretches along the foot of the left bank of the Longyear Valley and on the shore of Adventfjorden, the short estuary leading into Isfjorden on the west coast of Spitsbergen, the islands broadest inlet. As of 2002 Longyearbyen Community Council became an official Norwegian municipality. It is the seat of the Governor of Svalbard, whose mayor is 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 there in 1906. Store Norske Spitsbergen Kulkompani (SNSK) took over the mining operations in 1916, and still conducts mining. The German Kriegsmarine almost completely destroyed the town on 8 September 1943, but rebuilding took place after the Second World War. 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. Meanwhile, the town has seen a large increase in tourism and research. [Source: wikipedia // Google]

Svalbard (Norwegian pronunciation: [ˈsʋɑ(ː)lbɑː]; formerly known by its Dutch name Spitsbergen) is a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. Situated north of mainland Europe, it is about midway between continental Norway and the North Pole. The islands of the group range from 74° to 81° north latitude, and from 10° to 35° east longitude. The largest island is Spitsbergen, followed by Nordaustlandet and Edgeøya.
Administratively, the archipelago is not part of any Norwegian county, but forms an unincorporated area administered by a governor appointed by the Norwegian government. Since 2002, Svalbard's main settlement, Longyearbyen, has had an elected local government, somewhat similar to mainland municipalities. Other settlements include the Russian mining community of Barentsburg, the research station of Ny-Ålesund, and the mining outpost of Sveagruva. Svalbard is the northernmost settlement in the world with a permanent civilian population. Other settlements are farther north, but are populated only by rotating groups of researchers.
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 Svalbard 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 in place. Research and tourism have become important supplementary industries, with the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) and the Svalbard Global Seed Vault playing critical roles. 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 take 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, the Arctic fox, and certain marine mammals. Seven national parks and twenty-three nature reserves cover two-thirds of the archipelago, protecting the largely untouched, yet fragile, natural environment. Approximately 60% of the archipelago is covered with glaciers, and the islands feature many mountains and fjords.
Svalbard and Jan Mayen are collectively assigned the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code SJ. Both areas are administered by Norway, though they are separated by a distance of over 500 nautical miles (approximately 600 miles or 950 kilometres) and have very different administrative structures.
Norway travel , Norway's Top Attractions, Top 46 Most Beautiful Places In Norway
Norway is a sovereign state and unitary government whose region involves the western bit of the Scandinavian Peninsula in addition to the remote island of Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard. The Antarctic Peter I Island and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island are reliant domains and in this way not thought about piece of the Kingdom. Norway likewise makes a case for an area of Antarctica known as Queen Maud Land. Until 1814, the kingdom incorporated the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland. It likewise included Bohuslän until 1658, Jämtland and Härjedalen until 1645, Shetland and Orkney until 1468, and the Hebrides and Isle of Man until 1266.
