So far in the Corona pandemic, no infection has been detected in Longyearbyen and the city's tourism companies are open under strict infection control criteria approved by the Norwegian authorities.

We provide a 48 hour corona guarantee for our guests. This means that Green Dog Svalbard A/S refunds 100% of the price for activities - booked directly with Green Dog Svalbard - up to 48 hours before the start of the activity. It is assumed that the cancellation is due to the customer not being able to arrive due to corona related circumstances, such as canceled flights, imposed quarantine periods and closed borders. This counts for both individuals and groups.

We encourage all our guests who wish to cancel to change the dates of their booking instead. We are, as always, flexible on our cancellation terms and are happy to change dates without charging extra fees.
