Safety

Your Guide Is In Charge

Your guide has the full command of the group during the whole length of your expedition. Having the knowledge of the land, he is the one and only able to make decisions and his word is final.

Hostile And Fragile Polar Environment

Our trips take place in polar environments and in isolated regions that can be hostile and also extremely fragile. On site, your guide will detail the security procedures that you will have to adhere to not only when progressing with the expedition but also at the basecamps. He will also give you guidance for the day-to-day cold and comfort that you have to follow.

Polar Bears

There are many security procedures to avoid polar bears getting close to the group. This will be detailed by your guide. Your guide will carry an alarm gun and a rifle. He will use this as a last resort however since we have been in operation, we never had to use this. Every “night”, all members of the expedition will take part in night shifts to guard the camp. This is also a privileged moment to enjoy the calm of the wide Arctic landscape.

Emergency Communications

Our groups are equipped with a SARSAT communication system in case of emergency. This sends a signal to satellites that pass approximately every 30 minutes which can then locate the group within a range of 100 meters. Our guides also carry satellite phones and if needed can be in contact with our logistics in Longyearbyen.
