About

On this tour we will be accommodated out in the field in the russian town Pyramiden, which will be our basecamp. The town is 3-4 hours driving by snowmobile from Longyearbyen. There we will have the wildlife just outside the hotell where we will sleep and have our breakfasts and dinners.

In March you literally feel the Arctic environment on your body. The cold, the wind, the silence and the light... It is amazing. You might think this is a bit extreme, and might already start thinking about how freezing cold it will be. 

It will be cold, but you will be so occupied with the experiences that you probably forget that. During the day the temperature can drop to minus 30 celsius or below at times. On days with higher temperatures the wind usually increases and creates a windchill. 

We will focus on searching for wildlife, finding landscapes and following the light for photographic opportunities. We will search for Arctic Foxes, Ptarmigans and Svalbard Reindeers during these days. If we have luck, we may also spot a Polar Bear. There are restrictions concerning the environment and approaching wildlife in Svalbard, meaning that we need to stay at a safe distance where we will not disturb Polar Bears if we encounter some, but with a big lens it is possible to get some good pictures despite of the distance. You will experience the Svalbard winter like in an adventure you never thought would be possible. This is the ultimate experience from the Arctic environment.

You'll be accompanied by two guides on this tour.
