Being one of the world's northernmost populated areas, Svalbard archipelago is extremely cold during winter. Naturally, warmer time of the year from May to early September is the best time to visit Svalbard and enjoy its beautiful glaciers, bizarre tundra landscapes, and cruise across the icy waters. Only between June and late August you can kayak past glaciers and observe polar bears—this is an experience to remember. Camping near Longyearbyen airport under the midnight sun is another unique activity available at this time. Also, stop by Alkefjellet to witness Brunnich's Guillemot bird bazaar all over the cliffs. During long and dark winter from October to February marvel at the Northern Lights and go snowmobiling and dog sledding.
