Svalbard is at first a cold and hostile place, but young women from far more pleasent areas of the world, defy the bitter cold reality and spend season after season on this male dominated arctic archipelago. They are spellbound by the greatness, the silence and the intense beauty of the place. At Svalbard they truly live. That is why they postpone departure, that is why they end up staying. - Åshild27309.jpg - Åshild27314.jpg
