Svalbard, Norway
Norway boasts amazing wild nature with a number of great places to enjoy it and Svalbard is definitely one of them. Being the northernmost inhabited place in the world, Svalbard Norway is a striking archipelago in the Arctic Ocean that fascinates travelers from all corners of the world.

The place has a unique location just between mainland Europe and the North Pole and consists of several islands. The largest isles include Spitsbergen, Nordaustlandet and Edgeoya.

Svalbard Norway is the land of ice-covered fjords, sparkling glaciers and snow-capped mountains. It is a dream destination for those who want to explore the wildness of the Arctic nature and witness the charms of permafrost landscapes with shiny snowdrifts and white expanses. Svalbard also provides great opportunities for enjoying fantastic natural light show, the Northern Lights.

Moreover, the islands serve as a breeding ground for many seabirds and home to polar bears, reindeer and Arctic foxes.

Svalbard means 'cold coasts' but still the archipelago has a population of about 2700 people and features several settlements including Longyearbyen, Sveagruva, Ny-Alesund and Barentsburg. The biggest one is Longyearbye, a colorful and modern community that offers a range of cultural and eating opportunities.
