Woman living near North Pole films last sunset 2021

A Swedish woman who lives near the North Pole has detailed how she and her boyfriend are preparing for the long, harsh winter in one of the world’s most northerly inhabited areas.

Six years ago, Cecilia Blomdahl, 31, moved to Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago just south of the North Pole. The location is so far north that it is dark 24 hours a day from late October to early March, a phenomenon known as the polar night.

“We only have a few days until the polar night and it feels crazy, but it’s the truth,” she said in the latest video on her YouTube channel, noting that it was a bitter 10 degrees Fahrenheit that morning.

“It’s a little cold, but of course I’m going to say it’s so beautiful,” she added while outside with her dog, a Finnish Lapphund named Grim.

Blomdahl shares a cabin with her boyfriend in Svalbard, but they spent the summer enjoying the scenic view from their boat.

The pair visited Pyramiden, the abandoned Soviet ghost town, and they took some “refreshing” dips in the Arctic Ocean — which was a chilly 36 degrees Fahrenheit at the time.

“We anchored in front of huge glacier fronts for many nights and shared space with some of the Arctic’s many inhabitants,” she said. And many, many, many cups of coffee were shared with breathtaking views in the background.

“But I’m not sad that this time of year is over. I feel satisfied. I’m ready for the darkness of the Arctic night and all the beauty it brings,” she added. “I’m ready to give my mind some much-needed rest from the endless incredible scenery we witness here.

“It just overloads my creative scenes. But the end is the beginning of something new, and I’m really looking forward to it.’

As part of their winter preparations, Blomdahl and her boyfriend had to get their boat out of the water and park it on land in the marina.

“One thing I really love about Svalbard is that all the seasons are so different,” she said. “After four long months of midnight sun and incredible boating experiences, we are docking our boat for the winter and getting ready to start another exciting season of activities.”

The video featured a beautiful view of Svalbard as Blomdahl and her boyfriend drove to the marina where their boat was docked

“This is where everyone puts their boats on their trailers like that, and they’ll be here all winter,” she explained, pointing to the row of boats on land.

“So now we have to get everything out of our boats, like the duvets. We have food there and a lot of other things that we had in season.”

Blomdahl filmed her boyfriend using a ladder to climb onto their boat and admitted she wouldn’t go up there.

Her boyfriend got their duvet covers, towels and everything else that needed to be taken off the boat for the season, and she put them in the back of their vehicle.

They pay about $500 dollars each year to have their boat in the marina, and it’s free to park it on land. The only heated garage in the area is for boats under repair and only fits four to eight vessels.

“This isn’t the most ideal place to have a boat in the winter, but we don’t have any options here,” she explained.

The pair also had to winterize the boat’s water systems and engine by flushing them with ethylene glycol, a synthetic liquid substance that absorbs water and is used to make antifreeze.

“If you don’t do it, the pipes will freeze…it won’t be good,” her friend told her. ‘Then of course you have to take care of the toilet. Take some glycol in there. And empty all the water.’

At the end of the video, they went to wash their duvet covers and towels off the boat so that they would have them done.

The day before Blomdahl uploaded the YouTube video, she documented Svalbard’s last sunset of the year on TikTok, where she has 1.3 million followers.

It’s official guys! This here is the last sunset of the year,” she said, filming the pink sky. “Today the sun rose at 12:26 pm and set at 12:54 pm. So the polar night has officially begun.

While nonstop darkness would be a nightmare for most people, Blomdahl said she looks forward to wearing her winter gear, seeing the aurora borealis and spending cozy days in her cabin.

‘Whose excited? Me!’ she said.

The TikTok has become one of her most popular videos with over 6.1 million views in just a few days.

Blomdahl has become a true TikTok star thanks to the popularity of her educational videos about her life in Spitsbergen.

In 2020, footage of her walking around in the dark in the middle of the afternoon went viral and was viewed a staggering 8.9 million times.
