The Arctic climate in Svalbard requires you to bring along some extra equipment when heading out into the wilderness. Most people with some interest in outdoors activities may have the basics when it comes to outdoors equipment and clothing, and those interested in specialised activities such as ski touring or nature photography may have the specific gear required for this. But the nature in Svalbard has its own set of additional requirements when it comes to outdoors equipment that most people wouldn’t normally have nor need.

It’s important that the equipment is in order, especially concerning safety in the field, before venturing out on a trip. Due to limited phone reception in Svalbard, a satellite phone is often brought along on longer trips, as well as a GPS and emergency position-indicating beacon. Especially important is the equipment required to handle polar bear encounters, which should be brought even on short trips just outside of the settlements. While there’s a lot of equipment one must have, one doesn’t have to buy brand new equipment just for the sole purpose of experiencing Svalbard, and there’s a limit to what you can fit in your luggage!

Luckily there’s a range of businesses here in Svalbard that offer rental of various types of equipment which can come in handy and be needed when visiting and exploring. By renting in stead of buying, one is also acting with the environment in mind, as one can avoid having to buy equipment that will be required for just one single trip.

Be it skiing or hiking equipment, snowmobiles or cars, a camera, emergency communication or rescue gear that you may need, you should know that you’ll find all this and more available for rental here. In the overview below you’ll find information about the businesses offering rental services here in Svalbard and how to get in touch with them.
