In the Svalbard archipelago, over 600 miles north of Norway, the sun doesn’t set between April and August. From October until February, on the other hand, it doesn’t appear at all. As one of the closest landmasses to the North Pole, it may seem an inhospitable climate for all but the most resilient of miners or fishermen. Near the northerly town of Longyearbyen on the island of Spitsbergen, however, the agricultural equivalent of Noah’s Ark is nestled in the side of a snow covered mountain….” Greg White
