Welcome to this blog which has been set up for the Ice Edge Trip to Svalbard.
Twelve teams of young people, winners of a national competition, will be traveling to the fragile environment of Svalbard, a group of Norwegian islands located at the edge of the Polar Ocean. During the 10 day trip we will be travelling by ship to the wild animal sanctuaries on the north of the island, working with the university of Norway on environmental projects and enjoying the social and cultural life of Svalbard including dog sledging.
The trip starts on the 4th of July
We will be updating this blog regularly including photos and video diaries, so come back and see how we are getting on.
