several places: "Shopping for maps of Svalbard" Top 5 Page for this destination Svalbard Shopping Tip by Saagar
Svalbard Shopping: 15 reviews and 17 photos
What to buy: I described in another tip (in packing; "Maps for Svalbard") how to get hold of maps for Svalbard; what follows here is a mere summary of what i wrote there:
* The online shop Kartbutikken.no , website:
* The Norwegian Polar Institute at Tromsø.
* The Museum Shop at Svalbard Museum, Longyearbyen.
* Norli and Tanum bookstores in Oslo, plus, more accidentally, other bookshops around Norway. They will order for you if you know what you want.
* Souvenir and outfitters stores in Longyearbyen.
If you want to plan ahead of time, use www.kartbutikken.no; if you want to buy on-site, my best bet is the Museum Shop.
Beware of touristy, illustrated maps, they are not really worth it. See my tourist trap tip on this topic.
What to pay: See price list at kartbutikken.no
Directions: My best bet is to use www.kartbutikken.no (see Svalbard page below) where you get the price listing and all details.
