Know Before You Go
The facility itself is situated on the Platåberget mountain plateau, which ranges from 1,300 to 1,600 feet above sea level. There are currently 31 antenna systems, each typically separated from the next by about 660 feet to prevent interference. It's a strange, almost otherworldly sight, especially when the entire plateau is covered in snow, at which point, Star Wars fans could quite easily imagine themselves on Hoth, just without the AT-ATs.
SvalSat is about 3.25 miles from the town of Longyearbyen. The two are connected by a private road. When avalanches and landslides force the road to close, helicopters are used to transport staff to and from the facility. SvalSat is not typically open to the public, and any potential visits would have to be arranged in advance. You can contact KSAT via its contact page.
