Booking of our tours can be done via your travel agency or in writing to our office or web address. Separate registration forms for our long-distance trips/cruises will be sent.  Arrivals after the start of the event, and departures that may take place before its end, do not entitle reductions in the price of the trip, unless this is agreed in writing or indicated in advance. Nor will a reduction in price be given for conditions beyond our control such as weather, wind and flight or boat delays, changed ice conditions, etc. See section 5.

Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS reserves the right to change departure times, minimum numbers or cancel trips up to 4 weeks before departure (day trips until the start of the trip) if there are too few participants in relation to the stated number in brochures or on the website. Likewise, we reserve the right to cancel tours right up until the start of the tour due to force majeure or other events beyond the company's control that prevent the tour from being carried out.

Cancellation if the customer's assessment of their own physical and mental condition in relation to the tour's content is not compatible.

In such cases Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS reserves the right to cancel with no compensation in excess of the amount that the customer has already paid the operator. We also reserve the right to change the program along the way, if the organizer/tour leader deems it necessary for safety or technical reasons (weather conditions, scooter breakdowns, delays, etc.). In the Arctic, it is the weather that decides, and the extreme conditions that prevail can in some cases lead to the program having to be changed (also due to ongoing rescue operations) and thus does not give the right to a reduction in price. No refund in case of forgotten driver's license or delayed/cancelled flight.

Scooter insurance included, where used, and the deductible is NOK 6,000,- 

Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS tries as far as is reasonable to carry out the trip as described. The guest's safety will always be the first priority.


The customer himself is responsible for assessing his own physical and mental condition in relation to the tour's content. The customer must at all times follow the instructions given by the event manager, and it is not permitted in any case to bring private weapons or pyrotechnic equipment on our tours.


Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS reserves the right to refuse people participation in our activities if they are considered a risk to safety, or behave in such a way that it is embarrassing for the guide or other participants on the trip. Persons under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be refused admittance.


Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS activities are covered by liability insurance with our insurance company. We have also given a guarantee to the Governor of Svalbard for expenses in connection with any rescue operations on Svalbard. Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions cannot be held responsible for damage or loss that occurs outside of our control. For participation on our longer trips, we require that the individual participant has taken out individual travel insurance. This can be purchased through a travel agency or personal insurance company.
