News for the summer!

We’re introducing packrafting to Svalbard. This tour in Adventdalen is an easy trip for those who would want an outdoors Svalbard experience.

Adventdalen, or Advent Valley, is a broad and long valley with lots of delta rivers. From Longyearbyen you can reach many great options for trips, where mountains and the wilderness are just outside our doorstep. We raft close to the surroundings and wildlife, and our certified guides help you discover the beauty beyond our backyard.

This is a low-threshold trip, and we’ll provide you with full packraft gear so you don’t have to worry about getting wet if you should fall out of your packraft.

A packraft is an inflatable kayak, which is easy to carry. We’re testing out this pilot project this summer with 3 packrafts, which means that the group size is small.

We are offering two types of tours in Adventdalen:

4-hours trip in Adventdalen:
Available: All days
Time: 09:00 and 16:00

We pick you up at the hotel and transport you to Camp Barents, in the heart of Adventdalen. Here we put on our wetsuits and life jackets before heading out to the fjord. The paddling distance is 10 km long. At the end of the trip, we will make a bonfire at the beach and have a coffee with bisquits.

Included in this trip: 
- Pick-up and drop-off at the hotel, SAR insurance, guide with safety equipment and a light snack.

This hike is 5 km long, and the paddling is 15 km. You should have a backpack that can hold 40/50 litres and good hiking boots. At the end of the tour we will make a bonfire at the beach and have a coffee. This tour includes lunch.
