SVALBARD, NOR­WAY

Five Star Kids - - WWW. FIVESTARKIDSMAGAZINE.COM. AU -

The Nor­we­gian Arc­tic ar­chi­pel­ago of Svalbard is a treat for those who want a spe­cial elk en­counter. Lo­cated 650km north of the main­land, and 1000km south of the North Pole, Svalbard is an un­touched wildlife wilder­ness ripe for ex­plo­ration. Pre­dom­i­nately dur­ing the win­ter sea­son, herds of Svalbard Rein­deer travel along moun­tain slopes for food, giv­ing tourists fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­ni­ties to see them in ac­tion. The elk aren’t shy, ei­ther – stay­ing calm and quiet is the best way to pique their in­ter­est. There are many ways to dis­cover Svalbard and its res­i­dent rein­deer in­clud­ing treks, cruises and other tours. www.vis­itsval­bard.com
