Svalbard has a lot of everything and something for everyone. Here you can easily encounter most of the iconic Arctic wildlife, including polar bears, walrus, seals, reindeer, Arctic foxes, and huge colonies of Arctic seabirds. Photographers and sightseers will appreciate the wide range of classic polar landscapes such as flowering tundra, calving glaciers, snowcapped mountains, polar deserts, and the edge of the polar pack ice. The archipelago also contains a wealth of remains from historical periods ranging from the early whaling era to the Age of Discovery.
Svalbard makes a great first impression of the polar regions and your experience there will inspire your next polar expedition based on what you find most enjoyable - wildlife, scenery or history.
