For me, the “ Bergensbanen – minutt for minutt” was the best thought.. from the same slow TV series.

I liked both series but didn't watch them continuously! Maybe you should watch the Svalbard minutt for minutt also?


I liked Bergensbanen befor they made the new tunnels and snow protection fences. You could see more of the nature at that time!

My husband is obsessed with Svalbard! I will look this up. Thanks!
It is because of me we have not been there yet, but I am not sure I can bring more excuses, so I expect we’ll visit Svalbard in the near future..

You are welcome!

BTW why don't you want go to Svalbard? I have been there 3 times. Early spring, summer and early fall. The best time to go there depends on what you want to see and do.
