10 Best Places to Visit in Svalbard and Jan Mayen

Traveling British Isles, Jan Mayen & Spitsbergen from the Highlands to High Arctic

An Arctic voyage that begins much closer to home! With our new expedition cruise trailing north from the British Isles to Jan Mayen and Spitsbergen, Poseidon Expeditions invites you for a tour of rarely visited polar gems.

This viking-style voyage departs from Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. Who knew the Arctic could become so accessible with our m/v Sea Spirit, a luxury expedition vessel made to accommodate 114 passengers. We then cross the Arctic Circle, stopping at Fair Isle and Shetland Islands on our way to the rarely visited island of Jan Mayen - home to the northernmost active volcano on Earth.

M/v Sea Spirit pushes farther north and continues to Spitsbergen in the renowned High Arctic archipelago of Svalbard. This is Arctic expedition cruising at its finest: unique polar landscapes, from flowering tundra to sweeping mountain tops, and diverse wildlife ruled by the king of the North, the polar bear. We explore the fjords on the west side of the island to witness the highlights of Svalbard. We complete the Arctic experience by enjoying stunning scenery and visiting places rich with polar history.

Huw Lewis-Jones, an expedition leader for Poseidon Expeditions, walks you through our itinerary. More about this cruise:

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!

Norway 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.

LONGYEARBYEN Northernmost Arctic Town | Last day in Svalbard | ✈️Fly to Tromsø

In this video, I'll show you Nybyen and Longyearbyen – Visit Svalbard has a map of Longyearbyen and plenty of information for any touristy questions you may have!

Even better, you can actually rent a bike for free from Visit Svalbard. All you have to do is to reserve one, either by email or in person.

I stayed at Gjestehuset 102 hostel, which is located in Nybyen. It is about a 20 minute walk from Longyearbyen town center, but only about a 6-minute bike ride. Gjestehuset 102 is a great place to consider if you are on a budget trip to Svalbard.

This guest house is located not too far from the Longyear Glacier, in the Longyear Valley (which the capital of Svalbard is named after: Longyearbyen).

Ocean Adventurer Cruise: Rarely Visited Jan Mayen Island


Itinerary warned the chances were remote that passengers would actually set foot on Jan Mayen Island and they were right. Landing conditions were terrible. However, it wasn't for lack of trying!

It is a nature reserve and populated by just 18 rotating Norwegian military and weather personnel. So much for Jan Mayen...

Wonderful landscapes from Svalbard in 4K

When you are inn Svalbard you feel living in a dream, a real arctic adventure. In a landscape characterized by tundra, snowfall, glaciers, extreme light variations and an exciting wildlife everyday experiences that hardly exist in the world.

Longyearbyen, the largest town on the Norwegian islands of Svalbard.

At 78 degrees North, it lies just 800 miles or 1300 kilometres from the North Pole. And with over 2,500 permanent inhabitants it is the Northernmost real town on Earth.

There are only 50km of road, including the small streets between houses, so people get around the island mainly on snowmobile.

All those clips are from Svalbard (most of the clips are from Longyearbyen, Pyramiden ) and this was filmed in April. 2019.

Svalbard in Norway 2019

Svalbard: Nearest place to north pole you can visit - Travel Vlog

On a whim and out of sheer curiosity to explore the Northernmost habitable place on earth, i landed in Longyearbyen, Svallbard!

Here's a quick roundup of what it looked like...

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!

The Beauty of the Northern Countries (Norway, Iceland, Finland, Sweden, etc)

A tribute to the beauty and culture of Greenland, Denmark, The Faroe Islands, Sweden, Finland including Åland, and Norway... including Svalbard, Jan Mayen, and the traditional territories of the indigenous Sami people. (The flag I display for Svalbard and Jan Meyen is not at all official.. it was simply a proposed flag. These islands usually display the Norwegian flag, as they are part of Norway, but I wanted to create a distinction for the purpose of the organization of this video.)

A Closer Look at Norway



This Video is about a beautiful part of the world. I do not want the comment section to be filled with debates about what is Scandinavian, what is Nordic, whether the Finns were viking and so on. It makes me sad to see such arguments.

Autumn in Iceland

Iceland in that short period between the end of summer and the start of winter when the snows blanket the land shows off a beautiful mix of oranges, greens and reds.

This is video from my recent November trip to the south coast of Iceland. I was there for a week with my family and we were pretty unlucky with the weather as it rained a lot of the time. However, the first two days were pretty nice, so we got out and about in the car and I was able to do a bit of filming. All of the footage shown here was taken over a two day period, and seeing as the sun comes up at about 10 and sets at 4, I feel really lucky to have got the footage I did.

Iceland, being probably drone heaven for every pilot, has thousands of drone videos out there, but what's one more :)

La Norvège

La Norvège, en forme longue le Royaume de Norvège, en bokmål Norge et Kongeriket Norge, en nynorsk Noreg et Kongeriket Noreg, est un pays situé en Europe du Nord, à l'ouest de la péninsule scandinave. Il possède des frontières communes avec la Suède, la Finlande et la Russie. Sa longue côte atlantique abrite de nombreux fjords.

En 2011, avec 4 973 029 habitants pour 385 199 km2, dont 307 860 km2 de terre, la Norvège est après l'Islande le pays le moins densément peuplé d'Europe. Elle a pour capitale Oslo, pour langue officielle le norvégien (bokmål et nynorsk) et pour monnaie la couronne norvégienne (NOK).

Elle exerce sa souveraineté sur les îles arctiques de l'archipel de Svalbard et l'île Jan Mayen. La souveraineté de la Norvège sur le Svalbard est basée sur le traité du Svalbard, qui ne s'applique pas à l'île de Jan Mayen. L'île Bouvet dans l'Atlantique sud et l'île Pierre Ier et la Terre de la Reine-Maud en Antarctique sont des dépendances externes mais ne font pas partie du Royaume de Norvège.

Après la Seconde Guerre mondiale, la Norvège a connu une expansion économique rapide, et compte aujourd'hui parmi les pays les plus riches du monde, avec une politique sociale très développée. Le progrès économique s'explique en partie par la découverte et le développement de grandes réserves de pétrole et de gaz naturel sur sa côte. Depuis plusieurs décennies, la Norvège est classée première sur l'indice de développement humain3, et est également considérée comme le pays le plus démocratique au monde avec un indice de démocratie de 9,8 en 2011. Elle a aussi été déclarée pays le plus pacifique du monde en 2007 par le Global Peace Index4. Elle est membre fondateur de l'OTAN.

A parte continental do país divide fronteira a leste com a Suécia e ao norte com a Finlândia e a Rússia. O Reino Unido e as Ilhas Faroe estão a oeste, através do Mar do Norte, a Islândia e a Groenlândia estão a oeste, através do mar da Noruega, e a Dinamarca fica próxima ao extremo sul do país, através do estreito de Escagerraque. A Ilha Bouvet, no Atlântico sul, e a Ilha de Pedro I, no oceano glacial Antártico, são territórios dependentes (norueguês: Biland) da Noruega, mas não são considerados parte do Reino. A Noruega também reivindica uma parte da Antártida conhecida como Terra da Rainha Maud, uma reivindicação que foi reconhecida pela Austrália, França, Nova Zelândia e Reino Unido. A extensa linha costeira da Noruega, de frente para o oceano Atlântico Norte e para o mar de Barents, é a casa de seus famosos fiordes.

A Noruega mantém o modelo social escandinavo, baseado no modelo nórdico, na saúde universal, no ensino superior subsidiado e em um regime abrangente de previdência social. A Noruega foi classificada como o país mais desenvolvido do mundo em todos os relatórios de desenvolvimento humano desde 2001 (com dados referentes entre 1999 e 2010). Em 2009, o país foi novamente classificado pela ONU como o melhor país do mundo para se viver. A Noruega também foi avaliada como o país mais pacífico do mundo em uma pesquisa realizada em 2007 pelo Índice Global da Paz. Em 2017, um estudo feito por peritos internacionais com apoio da ONU, classificou a Noruega como o país mais feliz do mundo, superando a Dinamarca que liderou o ranking no ano anterior.

Apesar de ter rejeitado a adesão à União Europeia em dois referendos, a Noruega mantém laços estreitos com a UE e com seus países-membros, bem como com os Estados Unidos. O país é considerado um participante de destaque na diplomacia e na cooperação internacional, tendo sido profundamente envolvido nos fracassados Acordos de Oslo e nas negociações de uma trégua entre o governo do Sri Lanka e os Tigres Tamil. A Noruega continua a ser um dos maiores contribuintes financeiros da Organização das Nações Unidas e participa com as forças da ONU em missões internacionais, como no Afeganistão, Kosovo e Darfur.

Um estado unitário com subdivisões administrativas em dois níveis conhecidos como condados (fylker) e comunas (kommuner), a Noruega é uma monarquia constitucional hereditária e uma democracia parlamentar, com o Rei Haroldo V como seu Chefe de Estado. Os lapões têm uma certa dose de auto-determinação e influência sobre seus territórios tradicionais, através do Parlamento Lapônio e da Lei Finnmark. A Noruega é um dos membros fundadores da ONU, da OTAN (ou NATO), do Conselho da Europa e do Conselho Nórdico, além de ser membro do Espaço Econômico Europeu, da OMC e da OCDE.

O país possui uma área de 385 199 km², uma parte da qual se distribui por mais de 150 000 ilhas. Na área continental, predomina a paisagem de montanhas, platôs e fiordes. A Noruega possui uma fronteira territorial de 2 542 km, sendo 1 619 km com a Suécia ao leste, 727 km com a Finlândia ao nordeste e 196 km com a Rússia no extremo norte. Ao sul, a Noruega se separa da Dinamarca pelo estreito de Escagerraque. A extensão aproximada do país, de norte a sul, é de 1 700 km.

O terreno glacial é formado em maior parte por platôs altos e montanhas ásperas, através dos quais aparecem vales férteis. O país possui: pequenas e irregulares planícies, linha costeira bastante recortada por fiordes e tundra ao norte.

O clima da Noruega pode ser: oceânico, continental, subártico e alpino, com verões amenos e invernos longos e rigorosos, com ventos fortes e alta precipitação de neve. Diferentemente dos outros países escandinavos, uma grande faixa litorânea do país à beira do Mar do Norte e do Mar da Noruega é aquecida pela corrente do golfo, fazendo com que apresente-se, mesmo no mês mais frio, janeiro, regiões com temperaturas médias superiores a 0 °C, sendo mais comum precipitações em forma de chuva do que neve, como é o caso de Bergen, que em janeiro registra médias em torno de 2 °C. As ilhas Lofoten apresentam a maior anomalia climática positiva no que diz respeito à latitude. Entretanto, na fronteira com a Finlândia no condado de Finnmark, os termômetros podem registrar 40 °C negativos entre dezembro e março. A mais alta temperatura registrada no país foi 35.6 °C em Nesbyen, enquanto a mínima foi -51.4 °C em Karasjok.
