Svalbard at a glance

Why go?

With polar bears, abandoned Russian mining towns and stark glacial landscapes, it might be the most spectacular place Norwegian flies to. It might also be the closest you ever get to the North Pole.

Local hotspot

Mary-Ann’s Polarrigg, run by the indomitable Mary-Ann, might be one of the quirkiest hostels on earth, with its polar bears, wood-fired hot tub and smoking room in an old mining bus. 

You probably didn’t know

You can’t leave the main town of Longyearbyen without a guide with a rifle, because there are more polar bears than people on the Svalbard archipelago. Also, a litre of milk costs more than a litre of vodka.

Suggested reading

Read Philip Pullman’s famous His Dark Materials trilogy (1995-2000), as its armoured polar bears live in Svalbard.
