Clothing and equipment
Pack as little as possible for this trip. We recommend a waterproof backpack of around 35-42 liter. Your bigger luggage can be stored at your hotel while you are out exploring.
Necessary clothing in the Arctic is woolen thermals as the base layer, warm wool or fleece trousers & sweater on the top. Two layers of socks (thin & thick woolen socks), windproof layer on the top. Spacious clothing is recommended because air is the best insulation. Windproof mittens with a warm liner or thick gloves, a warm hat, scarf or flees- tube is also a must have in Svalbard.
We recommend bringing indoor shoes or extra woolen socks to Nordenskiöld Lodge. Leisure wear/ casual clothing for dinner, toilet articles, sunglasses, sunscreen (not based on water because of low temperatures, binoculars to spot and study the wildlife, photo camera, contact lenses if you normally use glasses).
All drivers of snowmobiles on Svalbard must be able to present driving licenses for passenger cars/class B, and the driving licenses must be issued in a country that is a party to the Geneva Convention of 1949 or the Vienna Convention of 1968 on road traffic. The driver’s license must be valid in the issuing country. Your driver’s license must be presented before the tour starts. This trip requires minimum two snowmobile drivers without passengers. We may also need to change the number of drivers and passengers in the group. This is in terms of safety reasons.
This trip is not suitable for persons suffering from back pains or pregnant women. This is due to safety for your safety and wellbeing, and Basecamp Explorer can unfortunately not to take responsibility for health problems if this advice is neglected.
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.
