GET­TING THERE

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Life In Svalbard -

Nor­we­gian and SAS fly to Longyear­byen from the UK via main­land Nor­way (from £260; nor­we­gian.com). Flight times mean a trans­fer night in Oslo is of­ten nec­es­sary. If so, check in to the Radis­son Blu Ho­tel, mo­ments’ walk from the main air­port ter­mi­nal. Rooms are quiet, comfy and dark, and a good break­fast is in­cluded (from £160; radis­son­blu.com). From Oslo, it’s a three-hour flight to Longyear­byen.
