Imagine a row of beach huts standing in the snow and that is Longyearbyen in winter. It is built on the permafrost of the tundra, it is life inside the Arctic Circle. Its cold, wrap up.  It has the worlds most northernly church, and a sun dial that for most of the year works round the clock as the sun does not go down from April to August. Here you will see reindeer wandering around the town.
