Bradt Svalbard: Spitzbergen with Frank Josef Land & Jan Mayen

Etukansi
Bradt Travel Guides, 13.5.2013 - 254 sivua
This stunningly gorgeous, seriously remote Arctic archipelago is about as far from civilization as you can get in Europe. Permafrost freezes the ground up to half a kilometre in depth, while winter temperatures can drop to over 40 below zero. But Svalbard's glorious mountains, majestic fjords and sprawling valleys are the perfect setting for adventurous journeys out to the back of beyond - by snowmobile, snowshoe or Siberian husky. Much of David Attenborough's BBC documentary Frozen Planet was shot on and around Svalbard. This new edition includes extensive information on the history, wildlife and landscape of this unique destination with detailed information on national parks and areas of exploration unavailable in other books. It is essential reading for visitors to the region and serves as an introduction to scientists, journalists, politicians and polar enthusiasts.
