Thanks to the warm current of the "Gulf Stream", Spitsbergen is the most northerly land a boat can reach in open waters. We are at the latitude of North Greenland. From then on, we immerse ourselves in a truly polar universe:
Its fauna : Bear - whale - walrus - reindeer - seal - arctic fox - thousands of birds - belouga…
An atypical flora : 120 species of flowers and mosses.
A polar environment "placed on top of the world" : Glaciers - ice floes - permanent day - a very old and varied geology ...
A story : A recent discovery 1596 - The great whaling in the 17th century - Departure of numerous expeditions en route to the conquest of the North Pole - trappers.
A climate : Relatively mild (between 5 ° and 10 °) but very dry as in the mountains, therefore easily bearable. And don't forget that the boat is heated to 18 °.
