Situated in the Arctic Ocean between Norway and the North Pole, Spitsbergen is the largest and only populated island of the Svalbard archipelago. This remote outpost is a nature lover’s paradise, boasting an array of Arctic flora and fauna, including reindeer, Arctic foxes, walruses, whales, thriving seabird colonies, and polar bears, which actually outnumber humans here.

Spitsbergen’s main settlement and administrative seat, Longyearbyen (pop. 2,000), is the gateway to many unforgettable adventures in Svalbard.
