Trappers Hut - Svalbard

Svalbard / Spitsbergen pictures, travel in the Arctic

There are a number of trappers huts all over Svalbard, some such as this one are still in use by the Governor of Svalbard for official duties, others are in good condition and preserved as relics of a way of life that is largely no longer in existence while others are wrecks or have just a few sparse remains.

Trappers would use the huts while hunting for anything from polar bears, to arctic foxes, beluga whales, and eider ducks amongst others.
