Welcome to Arctic Daily!

A daily glimpse of my time in Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard as Logistics Engineer for the AWIPEV polar research station.

How does one transport himself to Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard?

It's actually not that complicated. In my case I'll take a few planes from Paris with stops in Copenhagen, Oslo and Longyearbyen. Finally a small flight on-board a 15-seat Dornier Do 228 to reach Ny-Ålesund after a scenic flight above the beautiful Spitsbergen mountains and glaciers.

 

Comment se rendre à Ny-Ålesund au Svalbard ?

Ce n'est pas trop compliqué ! Dans mon cas je vais prendre plusieurs avions depuis Paris, en faisant escale à Copenhague, Oslo et Longyearbyen. Enfin, un dernier petit vol à bord d'un Dornier Do 228 de quinze places me fera atteindre Ny-Ålesund après 20 minutes à contempler les montagnes et glaciers du Spitzberg.
