Ice Cave visits

Svalbard’s glaciers contain countless passages formed by the melted waters leading to fascinating ice caves. Luckily for us, it’s possible to visit some of these.

Have you ever wondered what it looks like inside the ancient ice? Equipped with a headlamp, crampons and a helmet, you can enter this calm and silent world and see the beautiful blue colours, icicles and snow crystals.

There are several ways to get to the various ice caves. What about an adventure combining dog sledding with visiting an ice cave? A team of eager huskies will take you by sled out to the ice cave and wait patiently outside until you are finished exploring. Other options include driving a snowmobile right up to the entrance of the ice cave or being driven in comfort in a snowcat. Some people choose to go alone using snowshoes or skis. There is no shortage of options, so it comes down to what you wish to experience.

Join us into the wonderful frozen landscape and be captivated by the beauty in the ancient ice.
