Welcome to a unique adventure with Basecamp Explorer! Over 650 km, from north to south of Spitsbergen, on skis in 33 days is an amazing adventure for the experienced skier. 

DURATION: The duration is 33 days includes one day for preparation and testing of equipment in Longyearbyen, and two days transport by snowmobile. It provides a total of 30 days of skiing.
When it comes to the transportation out north and pickup south, it must be considered that we are in the Arctic with changing weather and snow. This is especially true for the return, and we recommend that the flight back ordered with opportunities for change.

Each participant must pull their own sledge, weight 60-65 kg incl. shared equipment. The expedition is demanding and participants must be experienced in skiing and outdoorsleeping wintertime in the mountains. Glacier experience previously is not required. The guide will provide training / guidance along the way.

CHANGING IN EXPEDITION PROGRAM: Weather conditions changing fast in Svalbard. Alternating weather as strong winds, blizzards, heavy mist, crevasses and lack of snow and ice is something we have to deal with. Based on this, the original program can be changed concidering the planned route, transport and changes in travel plans, and it may even mean that we are not going to planned destination.
