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

Ny-Ålesund city center

Ny-Ålesund city center

Ny-Ålesund is a really small town, its center consists of the older buildings which are in a wooden traditional Norwegian style. There are also several more modern buildings on the western part and close to the harbour.

The iconic Blue House is part of our AWIPEV base and is one of the buildings our guest scientists sleep in.
