About

2 day winter safari
We are kitted out and given an introduction in how to ride a snowmobile before setting off towards the lodge, located appr. 30 km from Longyearbyen. After a quick check-in at the lodge, we drive on towards Sassendalen, Fredheim and the magnificent and scenic Tempelfjorden. This fjord holds most of what Svalbard can offer; mighty peaks, spectacular glaciers facing into the sea, and an exciting history of past hunting and culture. We spend the afternoon exploring this fjord with all its element before returning to our warm and comfortable lodge where food and drinks are served.

On day 2 we're heading east. We aim to cross the huge glacier plateaus to arrive at the sea ice on the east side of Spitsbergen. Here we'll make a break to enjoy lunch en route, and to use our binoculars, looking for the King of the Arctic. If we are lucky, we may see polar bears on the pack ice. The tour itself is the goal, and we drive through mighty and varying landscapes. Return to Longyearbyen in the afternoon via the lodge where we pick up our luggage.

3 day winter safari
Program as for the 2 days long trip, but during this 3 days long program, we also plan to visit the abandoned Russian mining town, Pyramiden, located in the north, next to the mountain Pyramiden and the glacier Nordenskiöldbreen.

The Russian mining town Pyramiden was abandoned in the summer of 1998, however the buildings and infrastructure is still intact. Over the years, things haven't changed, and the time apparently never moved. With its wide streets and well planned town structure the town bear witness to Soviet presence on the island in the 1970's and 80's. Here most things were organized for efficient coal mining, however also for a society ensuring the welfare and family life for the mine workers.

To get to this beautiful located town we have to cross Tempelfjorden, drive through wide valleys and across glaciers before we arrive at the sea ice at the innermost part of  Billefjorden where we also pass close to the mighty glacier Nordenskiöldbreen.
