Take The Sun News to ... Svalbard

Vic and Sandy Woodling of Centerville took The Sun News to Svalbard, where they joined an expedition to explore the archipelago. The expedition ship left the town of Longyearbyen, which is the furthest north permanently inhabited city in the world. The expedition was forced to turn back south due to extreme pack sea ice just below 80 degrees north latitude. This is the Woodlings third trip to the far reaches of the polar regions of the world. Their first was crossing the Antarctic Circle and exploring the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula in January 2012. The second trip was aboard the Russian Icebreaker “50 Let Pobedy” reaching the geographic North Pole 90 degrees July 1, 2012. This summer’s trip was to explore as many of the islands of Svalbard as possible.
