Into the wild adventure
With our guides in Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions, you get to experience the natural magic through the use of your own body and energy with the smallest possible footprint. We are a sustainable company with activities on foot, in kayak, on skis and snowshoes, and further into the wilderness at camp in front of a glacier. We also arrange trips on snowmobiles in collaboration with local suppliers to cover a larger area towards the East Coast and the polar bear's kingdom.
Join us for a hike with a panorama view of Longyearbyen, walk across glaciers and mountains, past the Global Seed Vault and experience a real wilderness camp in Ymerbukta. Or maybe you'd rather explore the magical underworld of meltwater channels and crystalized chandeliers deep within the ice cave, with narrow passage ways and grand halls waiting in a world of ice...
December 2023 - Tim & Sharon: From start to finish, a really professional service. Pick up was on time. Our guide (Martin) was friendly, informative, and very helpful. We started at their office, where they keep all their supplies ( head torches, helmets,etc), and after going through an informative safety brief, we drove to where the hike started. To get to to the caves is quite a hike through the snow with some quite steep inclines, which my wife struggled with a little. Martin, our guide, was absolutely brilliant, helping my wife and showing huge amounts of patience & encouragement & experience when the going got tough. After several stops for rests we finally got to the entrance. A hole in the snow. Not what I was expecting. Martin gave a full brief of what to expect once inside. You are literally going down a rabbit hole. You climb down several meters and then wow. Your in the caves. A truly amazing place. Well worth the climb to get there. Not for the faint-hearted but another must do trip in Svalbard. Thanks Martin for a great day, and thank you to everyone else in our group who helped to make it an enjoyable experience.
