Amundsen, Nansen, Nobile… When you read about the expeditions of these (and many other) polar explorers, you always picture a blinding white, deeply silent, untouched wild, and infinitely calm polar desert. It is all true. In your imagination, it can appear to be abandoned as well; which is, however, not true for Svalbard. In the white winter, you will easily encounter living beings hidden in a white coat. White bears, white reindeer, white foxes, white ptarmigans, … the white soul of the Arctic.
