      Six people have been killed by polar bears since 1973, the most recent in August 2011, so if travelling outside settlements you are required to carry a rifle at all times to protect yourself.
      That's just from wikitravel, but it's about the same as what the link up there says too.

      I remembered this factoid because it's a place which utterly intrigues me and has for years. Really, all Arctic regions do, but Svalsbard is about as northern as they come.

      The towns there are tiny. Anyways, Google it! It's interesting (and gorgeous, and crawling with polar bears).
