Clothing and equipment
Pack your backpack with extra layers of clothes to put on if you get cold. Be prepared for cold temperatures and wind. Bring hand-/ foot warmers, something to give you energy on the way and a bottle of water. We recommend the Nalgene that can handle warm water, because it freezes quickly here in the Arctic.
Wear woollen thermals as the base layer, warm wool or flees trousers & sweater on the top. Put on two layers of socks (thin & thick woollen socks) and a windproof layer on top the warm layers. Spacious clothing is recommended since air is the best insulation. Wear warm and windproof mittens, a warm hat (wind proof) and scarf or flees- tube. On cold days it is nice to have a mask or a buff where you can hide your face in the cold wind.
This trip is suitable for everybody with good physical condition.
In Spitsbergen, weather conditions can change quickly. We can meet heavy winds, snowstorms or thick fog, crevasses and lack of snow or ice. This means we might need to make changes to the planned 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. We will always do our outmost to give our guests a great experience in the Arctic, but we must be aware that characteristics of the destination.
