Known as the city of ‘the blue poppy’, located 400km above the Arctic Circle, this small city is proud and unique.

Its triangular prism shape, with its glass mosaics, mirrors the landscape of this remote region of Norway, it also makes for a fantastic photo on a clear day.

A remote and welcoming village, Longyearbyen is a gateway to the distant sub-polar world. The Svalbard islands form the most remote province of northern Europe, and arriving in Longyearbyen therefore means reaching the northernmost municipality in the world. Small but vital, the town offers interesting collections of old maps and books in the Svalbard town gallery, as well as slides by photographer - composer Thomas Widerberg (Optional Shore Excursion). Longyearbyen was founded for extraction purposes due to the abundance of coal, so one often comes across abandoned coal mines.

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 

 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 

 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured.
