The Ultimate Arctic Experience?
May/June 2012 we were 5 friends spending 1 week isolated in our camp on the Wahlenberg glacier on the island Spitsbergen on Svalbard.
Surrounded by ice, snow and mountains, there is nothing else to do then go randonee and telemarking on any top you can see.
The options are endless, and there is so much more to do. Got to go back there one day! :-D
Note that on just about all these shots it is the midnight sun you are seeing. The light is awesome throughout the whole night!

Those pictures look amazing! Any company offering guides for that region?

This was my first trip to Svalbard, but my friends have been there a couple of times before.
You can see my friends pictures here:

2011 http://aagard.no/2011_Freeride_ski/110603_Svalbard_Freeride_01.html
2010 http://aagard.no/2010_Freeride_ski/100612_Svalbard_Freeride_01.html

We had private guiding from a friend that has lived there for a couple of years.
But I think these guys do guiding, or can at least help you out finding the right people:
