|Season (18 July 2020 - 12 Sept 2020)|
Wanna see the incredible? Spend a weekend in Barentsburg! One of the most fascinating places in the world.
The scene of the town is based on tradition and invention.
This is a place where you will see how the stories have been created then and now. Images of Amundsen and Peary’s polar exploration on dog sleds will come to life right in front of your eyes in our husky kennel. Here, right next to the North Pole, you will taste delightful food and a locally made beer, brewed from glacier lake water and English malt here in Barentsburg.
This is the place where miracles can be real. Even though cats are not allowed on Svalbard, there is one with red fur living in Barentsburg under the code name «polar fox».
The incredible is closer than you think! Come and get it.
