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. Svalbard is an excellent destination for visitors who want to experience arctic life.

This August, join Borton Overseas and Twin Cities Meteorologist Sven Sundgaard on a journey to discover Norway’s Arctic!

This exclusive small group tour provides a special focus on climate change. Sven’s personal knowledge and experience will lead the way, giving the group keen insight into this extraordinary place. If luck is on their side, they may even get a glimpse of the iconic polar bears that call this land home!
