Longyearbyen lies on the river Longyearelva on the Norwegian Island of Spitsbergen high in the Arctic. It is the world’s northern-most town, as all settlements further north are research or meteorological outposts. The modern town, fringed by abandoned mining detritus, enjoys a superb backdrop including two glacier tongues, Longyearbreen and Lars Hjertabreen. The small community of about 2,000 has developed from being a mining community into a community with a number of businesses and industries and a wide range of cultural activities and opportunities. The main attraction is communing with nature where seals, walrus, polar bears, whales, and seabirds abound, and photographing the midnight sun.

The town is home to reindeer that can often be seen wandering through the streets. Only one of the mines is still working, but it’s possible to visit Mine 3, which was turned into a living museum when it closed in 1996. The guides are all former miners who know first-hand about life underground. The Svalbard museum also provides an excellent insight into the life of miners, as well as the other local industry, whaling expeditions, winter trapping techniques and mining. Be sure to see the 24-hour sundial – a reminder that during summer months, the sun does not set for weeks on end.

At the Svalbard Gallery spend time in the workshops of local artists. Cafés, pubs and excellent restaurants offer everything from simple and inexpensive to the most exquisite menus, including many Arctic specialities. Longyearbyen has shops selling everything from fresh food, to sports and leisure equipment, gifts and souvenirs like gold and handcrafts. Svalbard is not subject to customs and VAT regulation. The prices will therefore be cheaper than on the mainland. Adventurers can also trek to the Esmarkbreen Glacier.
