"Svalbard: Beyond the Vain Creations"

Halfway between Norway and the North Pole, you’ll find a mysterious icy land called Svalbard. There isn’t much wilderness left in Europe I reckon, but Svalbard definitely takes the cake. Tucked away at 77° N in the Arctic, it’s a beautifully desolate and inhospitable land with no night in summer and no sun the rest of the year.Here, you will find untouched arctic wilderness and unique wildlife in a setting that is both rugged and fragile at the same time.In late February , the light can be extremely beautiful, with endless combined sunset and sunrise.
