Svalbard is considered to be one of the highlights of the Arctic. This is largely due to the magnificent landscape that greets you. With peaks 1700 meters high, mighty glaciers, fjords and valleys, there are many who fall in love with this place. The permafrost and Arctic climate characterize the landscape, but because of the warm Gulf Stream, the land is not as frozen and desolate as one might expect. In addition, the plants, birds and animals give life to the landscape and makes it well worth exploring.
Svalbard is an area of 61,022 square km distributed on the islands of Spitsbergen, Nordaustlandet, Edgeøya, Barentsøya, Kvitøya, Prins Karls Forland and Kong Karls Land as well as several smaller islands. Of this area, 65 percent is protected. The archipelago is located halfway between mainland Norway and the North Pole. Even if it is under a treaty, it is ruled by Norwegian law as well as the Svalbard environmental law.
