'Landet av Isbjørn' literally meaning 'the land of the ice bear' is the name often used for the islands of Svalbard

Despite numerous attempts, no one has ever paddled around all four main islands. Now, after 6 years of dreaming and planning to complete this epic trip, we are setting off to do just that. This will be our adventure amongst ice bears and Islands.

Like flying penguins these black and white birds launch into the sky or dive below the surface as we come driving forwards, often mere centimetres from them when they choose to evade up or down. The sky is filled with them and often they c
