4 days family adventure in Longyearbyen at Polar Night season

When thinking about your next family holiday destination, how about a quiet small town close to North Pole surrounded by arctic silence and northern lights? This remote destination, Svalbardl , offers the perfect setting for a family adventure.

Day 1

After your arrival to Longyearbyen airport, you can catch the airport bus to Basecamp Hotel. Here you can leave your luggage – for your night at the Trappers station, you will only need a minimum of personal items.

Your guide will meet you at 7pm and we go by car to Trapper’s Station, where we are welcomed by eager Alaskan Huskies. We meet the dogs and learn more about trapper’s history at Spitsbergen. Dinner is served inside the warm trapper’s cabin where we share stories in an authentic athmosphere. Outside Longyearbyen we don’t have the light pollution, which give us a good chance to catch the northern lights if the sky is clear. You can stay up to hunt for the northern light, or go into the heated wooden teepee for a good night’s sleep. Nights can be cold, but for that, we have warm expedition sleeping bags to keep you warm.
Your guide will be in nearby, and our Alaskan Huskies is your polarbear guard for the night

Day 2

We start the day with breakfast in the warm cabin. After breakfast, you and the kids can help with the daily chores handling a dog yard.  Feeding, socializing, playing with pups and just enjoy being outside

In Spitsbergen, weather conditions can change quickly. We can meet heavy winds, snowstorms, thick fog, crevasses and lack of snow or ice. This means we might need to make changes to the planed route, and this might lead up us not arriving to the planned destination. It can also mean that we need to use a different transportation style or accommodation than what was described in the program.

Program is for families and day to day program can be switched around.

As part of Basecamp Explorer Spitsbergen’s efforts to be climate neutral, there will be an additional climate investment charge of NOK 250 per guest. This is donated in its entirety to Basecamp Foundation’s forestry project in Masai Mara, Kenya. The trees bind CO2 and contribute to reducing the effects of emissions associated with our activities – and your travel.
