As hol­i­day lo­ca­tions go, the iso­lated Sval­bard ar­chi­pel­ago, mid­way be­tween Nor­way and the North Pole, has to be one of the most ad­ven­tur­ous. Rugged, re­mote and dra­matic, it has un­de­ni­able nat­u­ral glo­ries, and in sum­mer the abun­dance of mi­grat­ing birds, whales, seals and wal­ruses will have wildlife-watch­ers’ spot­ter­jot­ters bulging. There’s fun to be found in the univer­sity town of Longyear­byen, the world’s most northerly set­tle­ment of over 1,000 res­i­dents. Dis­cover The World’s trip can in­clude stay­ing at the new su­per-cool ren­o­vated Coal Min­ers’ cab­ins. • Price in­cludes flights, trans­fers and B&B ac­com­mo­da­tion, ac­tiv­i­ties ex­tra, dis­cover-the­world.co.uk
