About

We welcome you in Longyearbyen!

This activity gives you both a nature and sightseeing experience when you arrive in Longyearbyen. We will start with a tour by car along the city highlights, before we will start our short hike through the valley of Bjørndalen, where we always will be on the lookout for wildlife and enjoy the Arctic nature. We will pick you up from the cruise terminal. This trip is also suitable for children and combines a bit of hiking and sightseeing. Warm drinks and snacks included. Small group guaranteed.

Included
Our professional and dedicated guide, hot drinks and sweets, rescue insurance, emergency and safety equipment, transfer to and from the cruise terminal.

What to bring
We recommend that you bring: Sturdy waterproof hiking boots (above the ankle), (soft shell) hiking pants, shell pants and jacket (wind and waterproof), base layers, warm hiking socks, insulating mid-layer, warm hat (like a beanie), warm mittens/ gloves, comfortable day pack and a filled water bottle. If you can, choose woolen materials closest to your body.

Important to know
During all Viking cruises, we will only focus on wildlife/nature and skip sightseeing, since that is included in the itinerary of Viking
