    Although it is Norwegian territory, a strong Russian community bears its influence on this region, where the land is shared with polar bears.

    Never Leave the House Without Your Gun
    The polar bear is one of the world’s largest animals, and one of the most effective predators. They can be found almost everywhere. At Svalbard, you should never leave the house without your gun.

    A Modern Town
    Originally a base for whaling and with its roots in the mining industry, the capital Longyearbyen is today a modern town. It has its own university, a space research center, and an active tourist industry.

    A Hotel Frozen in the Ice
    Andreas travels by snowmobile to an old Swedish merchant ship. During the winter, the ship is frozen in the ice and functions as a hotel. On the ice right outside this ship Andreas prepares a Svalbard Borscht with Goose Stock to serve the hotel crew.

    The Menu
    The main meal today is created in the Svalbard University restaurant. A Vodka-Marinated Sirloin Steak may seem like an exotic combination. But the vodka gives a nice aroma to the steak while all of the alcohol is vaporized. The dessert is Baked Caramelized Pears with Ginger and Juniper Berries.
