Norway's national broadcaster NRK is streaming live footage from Hurtigruten's MS Spitsbergen's voyage through the waters surrounding Svalbard. The footage can be viewed here.

Slow TV is a unique Norwegian concept that will see a continuous nine-day webstream from the expedition ship as she circumnavigates Spitsbergen island extending north to the 80th parallel.

Hurtigruten says the virtual cruise involves 17 cameras, an abundance of history, stories and information, all accompanied by Norwegian and Sámi music. “This is the closest and most sustainable way you could possibly get to the real deal,” says Project Lead Thomas Hellum of NRK.
