We offer a wide range of activities in this extreme environment including hiking, dog sledding, cross country skiing and kayaking. This is the most northerly archipelago in the world and in order to experience it safely, it is essential you have the correct equipment. To ensure your comfort and enjoyment we keep a vast range of specialist kit in Longyearbyen all year round including VHF radios, SARSAT beacons, dry suits, life jackets, skis and even rifles.

A word from the team

Traveling to Svalbard is like entering another world, where your movements, comfort and activity are entirely dictated by nature. Each day we open our tent door to see glaciers, icebergs, reindeer, a curious polar fox or perhaps just a vast expanse of nothingness. This is planet Earth at it's most lonely, pristine and captivating.
