Program Description

Event Details

Join world travelers Barbara and Ron as we view the bleak beauty of peaked mountains, icy blue-white glaciers, and colorful tundra sporting tiny plants blooming over permafrost in this pristine land of midnight sun located midway between Norway and the North Pole. Take a peek at Svalbard’s wildlife, and hear stories of the whalers, hunters & trappers, miners, and adventurers from around the world—all bitten by the arctic bug—who tested their mettle against the long, cold polar night, scarcity, and hardship long before this became an accessible wilderness tourist destination. Photos from 2022.

Barbara and Ron will be presenting from the library's event room.
