Adventures in Spitsbergen

On Spitsbergen you never know how the weather will turn out. But one thing is for sure; it’s going to be an adventure!

You might be driving your snowmobile somewhere out in the wilderness of Spitsbergen, with blue sky above and the sun shining on your face, when suddenly you find yourself up in a whiteout in the next valley. In the summer you might be doing the same thing while hiking, when suddenly a blinding fog rolls in. A few hours later, the sun is back – just in time for the lunch break.

We warmly welcome you to join us on our ecological expeditions. Not only do you get to experience one of the rarest natures in the world, but you can do it with a clear conscience; knowing that together we take one step forward, one step closer to changing the course of global warming.

Are you wondering what activities and adventures are available on which dates and times? Choose the dates you are traveling and see our available trips for wanted period.

Escape the town lights and busy life and join us for a unique Trapper’s Dinner at Trapper’s Station.
