Imagine yourself at the top of the world. You, few other people, a handful of residents who are outnumbered by polar bears on the island, and scientist.

Welcome to Spitsbergen. While there isn’t a TON to do here, besides dog sledding, cruising around to old towns, glacier walking, polar bear excursions, ok, there seems there is a lot to do…

But in addition, you are able to witness some stellar occurrences including the midnight sun and the northern lights.

Flights are cheaper than ever
to go, and well, we couldn’t recommend it more. We talk about going back probably every couple of months. I assume it won’t be much longer now till the Arctic pulls us back to its beauty.
