Description

Exciting new tour for 2014! We start our journey driving into Adventdalen and then head south to Reindalen, one of the biggest and more impressive valleys on Svalbard (45 km long). We continue our journey by ascending the Slakbreen glacier and coming down Gustavdalen to reach Van Mijenfjord, also one of the biggest fjord systems on the island. Here we will have a warm lunch. If ice conditions permit, we head onto the sea ice towards the amazing Paulbreen glacier front. If we are lucky we might even see polar bear roaming on the ice! In the afternoon we take a different route back home and pass over the Longyearbreen glacier where we have splendid views over Longyearbyen.
