Svalbard is an archipelago in the Artctic, constituting the northernmost part f Norway. It is located about 400 miles north of mainland Europe, midway between mainland Norway and the North Pole. The winter season (November/December-May) offers many possibilities. Some travellers dream of reaching Svalbard's tallest mountain peaks by ski, whereas others prefer to experience the winter landscape by dog ledge or snow scooter. Nothing else in the sky looks like the northern lights. The sun and the moon, the stars and the planets are eterna, regular and predictable parts of human life. The northern ligths, on the other hand, are transient, variable and unpredictable. Here the cosmos parades its electrical and magnetic forces and produces colours and movements that are unique to nature.
