We are driving out through Adventdalen, extending eastward from Longyearbyen and into a river landscape that takes us to Tellbreen We take a closer look at the ice cave and the fascinating ice structures formed by water and sediments.
Join us as we drive snowmobiles out of Longyearbyen towards our ice cave at the base of Tellbreen, a glacier local to town. We drive across the frozen Adventdalen, and around into Helvetiadalen, and then on to the ice cave. Our guides open up this cave each year, and it is always different inside; no matter what, the 3000-year-old ice walls are certain to impress. Down here away from the elements, it is warm and silent. There will be a cozy atmosphere with hot drinks and biscuits as your guide tell stories from Svalbard's rich history. You will be taken safely through the cave to an exit on the other side and return to Longyearbyen ready for more of what the Arctic has to offer.
