Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions

Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS was established in 2008, but can be traced back to 1992 when Svalbard Wildlife Service started tourism activities in Svalbard.


The nature in Svalbard is beautiful, majestic, attractive and demanding. An encounter with this Arctic wilderness makes an impression on people who experience it. The team at Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS makes the conditions favorable so that you as a whole can actively take part in Svalbard nature-based adventures. In 1980, the founder of Svalbard Wildlife Service, Arne Kristoffersen, came to Longyearbyen as a miner. Since then, he has spent most of his years here and consequently knows this area better than most. After a year of preparations, Svalbard Wildlife Service was established in 1990, and Arne arranged the first tour in the summer of the same year.

This was part of the delicate beginning of tourism in Svalbard. Svalbard Wildlife Eiendom and Gruve 3 were previously part of Svalbard Wildlife Service, but are today run as separate companies. Gjestehuset "102"

Our aim

Nature-based adventures become even more amazing when the whole person is involved. Consequently, the team at Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS wants to make the conditions favorable so you as a guest play an active part in the expedition. In this way, we believe you gain a more amazing experience of the Arctic wilderness, you get a better understanding of being on an expedition in Svalbard and you learn more. We want you to have such a great adventure that you return to Svalbard for another expedition with Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS.

Structure

Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS is a limited liability company wholly owned by Svalbard Wildlife Eiendom AS. The company has two permanent year-round staff.
