People visit islands to get some sun but this Friday 20th of March many go there to NOT to see the sun.
The solar ecplise that will go on for hours is most vividly experienced on the Northern Atlantic islands. On the Faroes, it will be total for two minutes. On Svalbard, 1,500 tourists have filled all hotels, guesthouses and lodges. The local authorities have now put a stop to more visitors, it is cold and there are lot of polar bears.
