Who charted? Discover the people and places that truly rank with Icepeople’s Alternative Walking Tour of Longyearbyen


(Oops…we just learned we published this before the actual map was actually uploaded. We’re sorting this out….stand by. Meanwhile, a somewhat readable version, explanation of what this is and a plea for money is at https://www.facebook.com/groups/261561222442/10152930783602443.)

We get it. You’re one of the cattle. But you don’t want to feel like one of the cattle.

Coming off a cruise ship with 4,000 people it’s hard not to feel everyone in Longyearbyen is trying to milk you while following the herd aimlessly because…well, they must be going somewhere interesting.
So you stumble through the overcrowded museum, shops and pubs, and get back on the ship trying to convince yourself you had a great time in the extreme Arctic.

So we say screw the classic so-called sights and sites. Do any of the pictures in this box move you? They should – and if you read our exclusive alternative tour map in the center of this week’s fishwrapper you’ll learn why.
