Head back in time and hunt for the most unique Svalbard souvenirs! Hidden in the moraine near Longyearbreen, the closest glacier to town, we can find 60 million year old fossils.

Activity

Boat trip to the Von Post-glacier

The distance between civilisation and the wilderness is short, especially by speed boat. Experience it on this tour to Von Postbreen. At the head of the Tempelfjord you will find this glacier, together with its surging brother, Tunabreen, and also see its nearest neighbours - the mighty mountain ‘Tempelet’, and the trapper’s cabin Villa Fredheim - all in the realm of the polar bear.

Activity

Fossil hunting at Deltaneset

When you first fly into Longyearbyen, you will be greeted by the unique mountains that gave ‘Spitsbergen’ its name. The special formation of the peaks reveals horizontal layers through the mountains, whilst erosion creates vertical runs on the sides.

Activity

Boat trip to the bird cliffs

A short boat trip out into the Isfjord, between Longyearbyen and Barentsburg, you will find Fuglefjella. Above a narrow stone beach the cliffs rise from the sea, 500 metres up, nearly vertically, and the steep slopes are home to thousands of birds each summer. Join us on an exciting open boat tour which combines birds and wildlife with the island’s interesting history.

Activity

Boat trip to the Russian ruins of Grumant

Wilderness and history are both central to Svalbard as we know it today. An obvious example of this is Grumant, which was the largest settlement on post-war Svalbard, but which now lies abandoned at the foot of a 500m high cliff, covered with thousands of nesting birds.

Activity

Dogsledding on wheels

Many associate dog sledding with winter and freezing temperatures, but the dogs need exercise during the summer months as well, and our custom-built dog sledge on wheels is a perfect way for both two- and fourlegged to get out and enjoy the beautiful Svalbard scenery.

Activity

Dogsledding by the sea

Enjoy the beautiful coastal scenery whilst the guide drives the big wagon, pulled by strong sled dogs along the path to the west of Longyearbyen.

NOTE! Due to road work in Bjørndalen, this trip takes place temporarily in Adventdalen.

Activity

Evening cruise at Isfjorden

Join us on a beautiful evening trip out on the Icefjord with MS Bard. The midnight sun shines beautifully in the evenings and makes this a magical trip. There is no point in going to bed early when you are in Longyearbyen in the summer, and this is a perfect evening trip. The sea is full of wildlife and here the birds will fly along the boat. If you are extra lucky you will also get to experience whales.
