In the never-ending darkness, we will spend the day exploring in the Polar night. After breakfast, at 10.00, our hiking guide will meet you at the hotel reception. Dress well and wear steady shoes for hiking in the snow. Before we head off you get information about the hike, a headlamp, and snowshoes if needed. Always pay attention to the weather conditions on Svalbard, and we recommend to bring a small backpack with some extra clothing. The guide will teach you the principles of snowshoeing and plan the route depending on weather and local conditions in Longyearbyen and surroundings. Expedition lunch will be served during the trip, enjoyed in the mysterious landscape. Retour to the hotel around 15.00.
At 19.00 we will meet in the hotel reception for an evening at Trapper’s Station in Bolterdalen, 10 km outside Longyearbyen. As we drive into the darkness and leave the artificial lights behind, you can only imagine the steep mountains surrounding us. If we are lucky, the northern lights will follow to the Trapper’s Station where dinner is served with stories from a rich history of trappers in the Arctic.
