Felix gives in a talk in Svalbard

Felix arrives in Spitzbergen

Since Sunday, Felix and the tree are in Spitzbergen to complete the final preparations for the expedition team. In his spare time, Felix gave a speech to students of Spitzbergen School. The Spitzbergen School has 273 students from 20 nations.
In summer the temperature in Spitzbergen is between -2 and +17 °C, in winter it is between -25 and +5°C.
One of the biggest challenges on Felix’ trip to Spitzbergen was getting the tree through security checkpoints. Fortunately, the tree passed all the checks.
