About

Day 1

Are you ready for an Arctic adventure? Our guide will pick you up in the reception area of your hotel at 8am. We will have a quick look at the itinerary for the upcoming weekend. There will be time to make sure you have packed all of your travel essentials into a smaller bag (waterproof bags are recommended). Your excess baggage can be stored in the storage room at Basecamp Hotel. We will provide you with all necessary equipment, such as survival suits, goggles, hats, boots and gloves. We head down to the harbor and get settled in open RIB-boats. Get ready for some fresh air, sea spray and close encounters with the Arctic wildlife of Svalbard. The fjords are teeming with Arctic birds, walruses, seals, and belugas this time of year. We enjoy a hot lunch once at Nordenskiöld Lodge, with a spectacular view of the Nordenskiöld glacier. We explore the moraine landscape on foot and get to know the surrounding area. Your guide will be happy to share their knowledge of the area and of the glacier itself! We return to the cabin before nightfall, and you will have time to relax in the sauna before dinner is served.

Day 2

Today is glacier day! We will introduce you to the equipment while teaching you some basic safety rules. We will provide you with all the necessary equipment for the glacier hike. The glacier is situated just a stone’s throw away, and we will have to cross a small river to get to our starting point. We hike up and down the glacier, crossing multiple smaller crevasses. There are few more beautiful places in the world to enjoy an outdoor expedition lunch. The view of Adolfbukta and Billefjorden is nothing short of spectacular. Did you know that 60% of Spitsbergen’s surface is covered by glaciers? If the weather gods are on our side, there will also be time for an afternoon kayaking trip to the glacier front. Be on the lookout for curious seals! We top off the day by a relaxing visit to the sauna, followed by a much-appreciated hot meal.

Day 3

After finishing breakfast, we embark upon a final hike along the beach. We sit down for lunch before cruising across Adolfbukta to the Russian ghost town, Pyramiden, and have a closer look at the former Russian mining society. We return to Longyearbyen by boat in the afternoon.
