Svalbard Spitsbergen

Ice Cave: Hike to explore the ice cave - Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions

  • Vei 608, Spitsbergen

Overview

Under the glaciers at Svalbard you find a frozen world: A world filled with ice that have been shaped during summertime by melting ice and snow through the melt water channels.

Under the glaciers at Svalbard you will find another world, a world filled with ice that have been made in the summertime at Svalbard by melting ice and snow through the water melting channels.

We start from the top of town in Nybyen and walk up to the glacier.  After hiking uphill for ca 2 hours and covering 350 highmeters we reach the entrance to the cave. Here we will dress us with safety equipment like helmet, spikes and head light before we continue down to the cave.

Inside the cave we spend time to experience the underworld with halls, tight passages and thick layers of ice crystals.

The trip is moderately difficult, some mountain hiking and some crawling in the cave can be expected. The trip does not fit for guests with back problems, claustrophobia or poor physical shape.

In the ice cave we serve something warm to drink and biscuits.

We recommend bringing a backpack with something to drink during the hike, extra warm clothes, extra space for gear (spikes, helmet and a headlamp) and solid hiking boots for winter conditions.

Minimum 2 persons.
