Svalbard, Norway, a remote Arctic archipelago found along the 80th parallel, is halfway between Norway and the North Pole. It is home to the Seed Vault, and is an important research center for scientists from all over the world. It also features stunning landscapes, a fascinating history and unique wildlife, including polar bears. Svalbard is an excellent destination for visitors to experience arctic life, and learn about climate change.
This August, join Twin Cities meteorologist Sven Sundgaard and Borton Overseas Scandinavia Supervisor Nicole Anderson, on a journey to discover Arctic Norway! On this Borton Overseas Signature Journey we head to 80° north to see the extraordinary landscape, glaciers, and wildlife of the arctic archipelago of Svalbard. With a special focus on climate change and Sven’s personal knowledge and experience to lead the way, this is sure to be a fantastic and informative trip. If luck is on our side, we may even get a glimpse of the iconic polar bears that call this land home! We hope you will join us on this journey rich in science, history, and extraordinary experiences.
