Bird Cliffs of Spitsbergen - Fuglefjellet

photo

At Spitsbergen Travel's trekking headquarters, we were equipped with flotation suits, boots, fleece-lined hats, and heavy gloves. (Flotation suits, a.k.a. "float suits," are waterproof nylon overalls with a layer of closed-cell foam inside.)

  • Note: The snowmobile in the photo above is used for winter day trips and overnight expeditions. In Norway, a snowmobile is called a "scooter," a name that can be confusing to a foreigner who may be expecting a glacier trek on a Vespa.
