Longyearbyen, Svalbard

Our flight brought us into Longyearbyen at 1am on Friday 23rd April. The following day was spent on the outskirts of the town at Ade and Jackie's (expedition chief leader and base camp manager) container. Pulks were issued, skis were fitted, bags were packed and re-packed, and, when we had the chance, Svalbard was marvelled at. This was our first view of the sea-ice which, at this stage, reached almost all the way into the mouth of Adventdalen.
