Also the colour photos have been updated and they are now not organised in separate sections anymore, but all photos are located in the the text, exactly where it makes most sense.

Many sketch maps within the text provide geographical orientation. Furthermore, this books will answer questions concerning practical issues, how to travel in Spitsbergen, which seasons are good, relevant legislation, hazards out in the field and more.

    Popular routes (hiking, snow mobile tours, cruises) are described in detail.

    "Spitsbergen – Svalbard" has approximately 608 pages (A5, paperback) including more than 260 colour photographs to document the biological and geographical diversity of Spitsbergen.
