The ultimate Svalbard ski experience with private guide
This trip allows you to experience Svalbard in the best way possible. Moving with skies and pulkas you really have time to take in the nature. We will sleep in tents and use our stoves for cooking.
From the huge valleys of Svalbard we will ski into a stunning system of glaciers surrounded by mountain-peaks. This is a complete snow-mobile free area and therefore the perfect place to experience the arctic silence and be alone.
We will use the day before the trip to meet up and go through the equipment, how to use the stoves safely and set up the tents.
Experience with winter camping from earlier is an advantage, but not neccesary. You must be able to ski and move approximately 10-15 kilometers a day.
Day 1: We will meet up and go through the equipment and the route. It is important to know how to use the stoves corectly and how to set up the tents.
Day 2: We take a taxi out to the end of the road, close to the last operating Norwegian coal mine. We unload our skies and equipment and start our trip towards the glacier-area. We take it easy the first day and set up an early camp to go through the routines for camping and polar bear safety.
Day 3-6: We ski into the beautful and remote area of Møysalen and Drønbreen and decide how to use the next days. Here we can set up a camp and ski on the surrounding mountains and enjoy good food, the midnight sun and the peace and quiet. We can also ski longer days and make a nice roundrip back to Longyearbyen through the huge valley Reindalen, guaranteed to see many reindeers grazing.
If we want we can finish off the adventure with a dinner at the resturent Kroa toghether when we return.
