About

Visualize life on Svalbard before the advent of modern society. The isolation, the difficulties, and the breathtaking landscape. Imagine enduring the entire dark season in a small cabin, miles away from any other person.

This tour offers an in-depth look at the struggles faced by Svalbard's residents and their deep love for the wilderness, explaining why they chose this lifestyle. From the era of the trappers to modern living, we will lead you on "A Historic Walk in Adventdalen."

History, Wilderness, Science, and Culture

We commence our journey in Adventdalen (Advent Valley) and proceed on foot into the wilderness. Your guide will share tales about Svalbard, from the trappers' past to the coal mining period, and into the contemporary era, where research, science, and tourism are integral to life on the island.

As we walk through the Arctic tundra, you will develop a greater appreciation for what it was like to live so far north during this season. We will also discuss the scientific pursuits that have enhanced our understanding of the Arctic climate and environment, highlighting Svalbard's essential contribution to global climate research.

For tours held in the dark, headlamps will be provided to guests, making the experience both safe and magical under the Arctic night sky.
