From the City to the Stunning Arctic
Location : Oslo to Longyearbyen, Svalbard
This Grand Svalbard Circumnavigation starts with an evening flight from Oslo. Norway's capital is often called "The blue, the green, and the city in between" because of its location between the fjord and the forest. Spend a day checking out the many museums, parks, and varied architecture or relax in a café or bar. The contrast will be significant when you arrive in Longyearbyen a couple of hours later. Still, Longyearbyen is a modern town with first-class facilities, charming architecture, an internationally renowned museum and several bars and restaurants – all in the midst of the untouched Arctic wilderness.
