Svalbard is the official name of the archipelago that in former times was called Spitsbergen. Now it is preferred to use Svalbard and only refer to the main island as Spitsbergen
We came to Spitsbergen on the "Professor Molchanov", a wonderful little cruise ship and before ending the trip in Longyearbyen we had seen a little of the West Coast of Spitsbergen. Not the best of weather, but a great experience!
After disembarking we stayed in Longyearbyen for an additional 2 1/2 days, exploring both the "capital" of Spitsbergen as well as going on a daytrip to Barentsburg, the only remaining Russian settlement on Svalbard.
I do hope I will be able to go back there one day!
This page is an overview, so you might recognize some of the tips from the detail pages of Longyearbyen and Barentsburg.

I hope you don't mind!
