  • Turbeskrivelse

    Join us on an unforgettable three days' adventure into the heart of the Svalbard wilderness, where you'll be hours away from civilization and people. Nestled in the stunning location of Ymerbukta, this trip offers a variety of activities, including kayaking, hiking, and glacier walking. All the necessary equipment for these activities is provided, ensuring you can fully immerse yourself in the experience without any worries.

     

    We'll camp in tents for the entire duration of the trip, allowing you to truly connect with the rugged Arctic nature. Get ready to encounter unique wildlife in their natural habitat and experience the true essence of the wilderness. This environment requires a certain amount of adaptability and flexibility, but no prior technical skills are needed.

     

    To ensure everyone's safety, guests and guides alike will participate in shifts for polar bear watch at night, as Ymerbukta falls within the habitat of this iconic animal. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy some alone time with a fantastic backdrop. This trip is perfect for those seeking adventure and tranquillity in equal measure.

     

     

    Dag 1:

     

    *Husk å be om tidligere frokost om du bor på hotell/gjestehus!

     

    Our adventure begins with a pick-up at 7:30 AM from your accommodation. We'll start with a briefing at our storage facility, during which we will make sure everyone has all the necessary equipment, before driving to the harbour, where we'll board a boat bound for Ymerbukta, crossing the Isfjorden. The journey takes about two hours, after which we'll transfer to shore using zodiacs.

    Once we arrive at our destination, we'll set up camp together, learning the best practices for pitching tents and organising our site. After settling in, we'll spend the day familiarising ourselves with the surroundings and will also embark on a short kayak trip. Our guides will demonstrate the proper kayaking techniques and provide supervision to ensure everyone's safety and enjoyment. In the evening, we'll review the weather forecast and plan our activities for the next day before heading to bed, ready for the adventures ahead!

     

     

    Dag 2:

     

    After a hearty breakfast, we'll head towards the Esmark Glacier, with its imposing front. Donning our glacier equipment, including crampons and harnesses, we'll hike onto the glacier under the guidance of our guides. They'll share essential techniques and best practices to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

     

    Midday brings a picturesque lunch on the glacier, with stunning views of the mighty glacier formations and the inlet ahead. In the afternoon, we'll make our way back towards the camp, soaking in the serenity of the Arctic landscape. Back at camp, we'll come together to prepare dinner and get ready for bed.

     

    Dag 3:

     

    We'll begin the process of breaking down camp, packing away our gear and memories. Before departing, we'll take a short walk in the surrounding area, soaking in the final moments of our stay in Ymerbukta. As our journey draws to a close, the boat will arrive to pick us up, offering a last opportunity to gaze upon the rugged Svalbard landscape. On board, we'll enjoy lunch together and spend a few hours looking for whales in the icy waters of the Isfjorden. We’ll then make our way back to Longyearbyen, where our adventure first began.

    The itinerary for this tour is subject to adjustments based on weather conditions and the fitness or preferences of the group. In Svalbard, weather conditions profoundly influence our operational decisions, guiding our choices at every turn. Additionally, the presence of polar bears near our campsite may necessitate alterations to ensure the safety of both our guests and the local wildlife, as safety remains our foremost priority throughout the expedition.

     

    Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions tar sterkt avstand fra invasjonen og krigen i Ukraina. Barentsburg og Pyramiden er eid og drevet av det russisk statseide Trust Arktikugol, men flesteparten av innbyggerne er ukrainere.  Ved å besøke bosetningene støtter en den russiske stats selskap, så vi besøker ikke Barentsburg.
