A brief but common sense guide for Arctic survival.

From the Government Pamphlet:
1. Don’t be an Arctic litterbug!
Leave no lasting signs of your visit.
2.Birds and other animals are not to be
disturbed. Remember, you are the guest.
3.Help take care of the biodiversity.
Do not pick flowers.
4.Leave old cultural remains alone. Law protects
all traces of humans from before 1946.
5.It is prohibited to lure, pursue or otherwise
seek out polar bears in such a way as to
disturb them or expose either bears or
humans to danger.
6.Don`t leave settlements without a suitable
gun, and experience in using it.
7.Be considerate to others.
8.Contact the Governor’s office (Sysselmannen)
if planning a longer field excursion. A manda-
tory registration applies for travel to large
parts of Svalbard.
9.Acquaint yourself with the rules and regu-
lations pertaining to travel and other
tourist activities in Svalbard.
10.For the sake of both the environment and
yourself, we recommend organised tour
arrangements. ... rd-eng.pdf
