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.
