EARTH, SAFARI, SNOW

I’d always loved big cuddly creatures, especially those that lived in a land of ice, snow and glittering night skies. However it wasn’t the Northern Lights I wanted to see when I alighted in Longyearbyen on the Svalbard archipelago – 78 degrees north of the equator. I’d come here to see the polar bears.

Plummeting from a helicopter onto spectacular off-piste terrain is the only way to ski if you’ve got the budget for it. The pastime is thought to have begun as early as the 1950s in the US, but these days there are a wealth of luxury destinations that provide thrill-seekers with the greatest of downhill pursuits.
