Classic Nature Adventures

The fact that Svalbard is an outdoor recreation paradise is well known. However, many are surprised to learn that the nature-based experiences up here come in all types, shapes and sizes.

Great nature experiences right outside the city

Classic nature adventures are perfect for guests who like to be outside, nature enthusiasts and those who enjoy moving about and being active in beautiful landscapes. The best part of visiting Svalbard is that this Arctic wilderness starts virtually in the town centre and never ends. Just the thought of where you are on earth when you visit Svalbard is enough to make many people giddy with joy.

Up here, the North Pole is right around the corner from the pub. But you certainly don’t need to travel far from Longyearbyen to have amazing nature-based experiences. Piotr DamskiHalf-day and full-day trips enable you to see glaciers, tundra, animal life, majestic mountains and fjords. You will discover nice trails and exciting mountains you can explore right on the outskirts of town. Everything is there just waiting to be explored. All you need to do is throw yourself into it with the warm heart and clear head of an outdoor recreation enthusiast.

Create a custom excursion program

Classic nature adventures include a wide range of guided excursions specially designed for nature and outdoor recreation enthusiasts who want an active Svalbard holiday without spending too many days. By choosing different types of activities and following the level of difficulty of each trip, you can create an excursion programme that is perfect for you and your travel companions.
