Set high in the Arctic Ocean, the remote Svalbard archipelago extends between 74 and 81° north. It is the northernmost place in Europe and is the farthest north you can travel by scheduled flight.
Svalbard offers Arctic experiences on the edge of the inhabitable world, but it’s not as inaccessible as people might think. Start in the morning from the central Europe and you will be in Longyearbyen by mid-day. And in one of our remote stations by the evening. There are no roads beyond Longyearbyen. Here, you really are on the edge of civilization. Outside the city only, the vast wilderness is waiting for you. Despite its history of coal mining and trapping, Spitsbergen is still mainly pristine wilderness. One of the most fragile ecosystems anywhere on Earth.
