Activity

Sightseeing summer with electric bike

Combine comfort and efficiency on our electric bike tour, enabling you to see a range of Longyearbyen's sights while getting close to nature. The birdlife is at its best during the summer months, and silently moving through the wilderness will bring you close to the action. Electric bicycles are the perfect way to explore the sealed and unsealed roads around Longyearbyen.

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 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

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

Sea fishing in the arctic

The cod has come to Svalbard! Over the last few years the Isfjord near Longyearbyen has been teeming with cod in the late summer and autumn, and a fishing tour is fun for all. You don’t need a hunter’s licence or special permissions, just a good dose of luck!
