BASECAMP EXPLORER SPITSBERGEN
Set high in the Arctic Ocean, the remote Svalbard archipelago extends between 74 and 81° north. It is the northernmost place in Europe, and is the farthest north you can travel by scheduled flight.
Spitsbergen offers Arctic experiences on the edge of the inhabitable world, but it’s not as inaccessible as people might think. Start in the morning from the central Europe and you will be in Longyearbyen by mid-day. And in one of our remote stations by the evening. There are no roads beyond Longyearbyen. Here, you really are on the edge of civilization. Outside the city only, the vast wilderness is waiting for you. Despite its history of coal mining and trapping, Spitsbergen is still mainly pristine wilderness. One of the most fragile ecosystems anywhere on Earth.
It is important for us as a tourism company to take care of the Arctic nature. We welcome you warmly to join us on our ecological expeditions. Not only do you get to experience some of the rarest nature in the world, but you can do it with a clear conscience. Furthermore, knowing that together we have taken one step closer to change the course of global warming.
