Svalbard is (in my opinion) an amazing place. Why? Well because it holds so many features in which are extraordinary such as, Northern lights, Seed vault and painted houses. I…t is also very cold (Because it is inside the Arctic Circle) Hope that helped :)

Normal people like you and me. But they just live in a cold isolated place. I Longyearbyen (capital) they have a small supermarket to source the whole town/city. Further into …the vicious north and more isolated parts inuits live. The people there are just like us.
Some cruises of the Norwegian coast go to Svalbard, however the safest and cheapest method is a flight from Tromso to the one public airport on the island which is in Longyear…byen, this flight goes about once a day, flights from Tromso to the Norwegian capital Oslo are far more regular. There are a number of restrictions in Svalbard about where you are allowed to be, much of the island is reserve, not to mention dangerous, it is against the law to leave the town area of Longyearbyen without a method of defence against polar bears.
