We go FOUR months without seeing the sun | SVALBARD long winter | Cabin Trip 4K

Guyyysss! I made merch ♡ I hope you like it!

I finally got to see the sun again for the first time since October, and it was nothing short of magical! Check out this last part of the cabin trip to see us enjoy the sun and drive on some sketchy glaciers.

    Tusen takk, Cecilia, for your informative and beautiful videos from Svalbard, and this episode is one of the most gorgeous clips of yours. My ties to the archipelago are more "spiritual" though, never having been there in my life, but watching them gives me a sense of orientation as if I'd see clips from my nicest travel. Amazing.

    When did people settle svalbard? I mean it must have been impossible to live there before the invention of electricity. At least permanently, you would have to leave before winter.

    I'm from sunny Arizona, we have more than 320 days of sun in the year. Love your videos and your lives are fascinating, kudos to you for loving the Arctic cold. When it dips to 50 degrees here we get cold. I couldn't make it without sun and gardening, even here in Phoenix we have trees everywhere, and cactus, and a few rattle snakes on the hiking trails when it's hot, lol. The beauty of Svalbard with it's majestic snowy landscape is wonderful.

I keep inviting people to your channel, and I often get thanks back for the tip. I'm curious; are you speaking Swedish or Norwegian when you talk to Grim? Would love to visit Svalbard someday!

    Would polar bears chase a moving object like your snow mobiles? The good thing I would imagine about using drones is that you scout out polar bears in front of you, and possibly cracks in the ice too?

    Hey, Cecilia! Firstly, I wanted to thank you for the work you put in creating such great quality and informative content! Secondly, I was wondering if you could answer two questions I have after watching this video: - why is it not recommended to stop while driving over a glacier? Are there any risks of ice collapsing underneath? - is it more comfortable to have a snowmobile for each of you or is it actually impossible for a second person to ride as a passenger on a snow mobile? Take care and keep up the good work you do! ☺️

    Hi Cecilia, interesting to see Grim has his own little cart attached to the snowmobile as on other videos his only running next to you. How many of the 80km does he run by himself? Does he have the cart because its so far or because of safety (glacier) or when its extremely cold? Enjoy the sun!

    Yeah I got him a "sluffe" 😍 It is mostly for his safety and comfort when we go on longer trips because my current snowmobile has such a narrow seat! He runs for a few kilometers now and then along our trip. I would say he does about 10km in total on a longer trip, with a few stops 😊

    OMG ... the moments when Grim was running next to you on the road, looked back at you, sometimes slipping across in front of your sled, it was pure freedom itself. And when you sent up the drone and we saw the wind chasing the snow on the snow field and the whole landscape rippled and the horizon flashed in divine colors ... it was simply so overflowing that I had to cry ... it was the catharsis of my day, so I am very grateful for it.
