  • Itinerary

    Svalbard has many different possibilities when it comes to ski trips. The landscape varies, depending on where you are. Starting in Longyearbyen, we have Nordenskiöld Land, which has the most accessible area for longer ski trips.

    The area is varied with mountains and geological systems, and with wide valleys and the coastline. There are also areas here with limited access for snowmobiles, so here you can feel alone without disturbing motor traffic.


    Day 1:


    Preparation and planning of the trip. The guide will come and pick you up at your accommodation at 09:00 in the morning. From here, you drive to the storage place to have a review of the trip and to prepare and pack all equipment in the pulkas. After lunch, we will be transported to our start point of the trip, Bolterdalen. We will start skiing some kilometers before we settle our first camp for the night.


    Day 2:


    We continue our way in to «Bolterskaret» before we head gently down towards Tverrdalen and Reindalen. This day we will ski in narrow valleys, surrounded by inland glacier and mountains. We will settle our second camp in the end of Tverrdalen next to the wide valley of Reindalen.


    Day 3:


    After breakfast we will pack the camp together and start the ski trip towards Reindalen. During the day we will continue up this valley and head to the Kok glacier, on the North side of Reindalen. When getting to this area the terrain change and we arrives in to an alpine terrain with mountains and peaks surrounded by glaciers. Here we will settle our camp for this night and enjoy the landscape.


    Day 4:


    This day we will spend in the area of «Møysalen». There are alternative routes of the day, and we will plan this together. Maybe we can visit on of the peaks, or take ski trip in the nearby surroundings. The mountains in this area are the highest one for several kilometers, and on a clear day, the view is stunning.


    Day 5:


    The last day brings us back to the low land again, and to «Jansondalen” and Adventdalen. From here we ski back to the beginning of Bolterdalen where our ski trip started, and our transport back to Longyearbyen will be waiting for us. We have now ended our ski trip through a varied landscape.


    The schedule for this tour may be altered due to weather and size of the group. On Svalbard, the weather shapes every decision. Polar bear in the camp will also lead to changes as we are bound to protect its existence.
