Reviews

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Amazing

Kolbrun was absolutely fantastic! My hotel was amazing and all the tour guides were incredible. I had the most amazing time.

Thank you!

Sindre is great to work with! We had done some research and were having a bit to trouble understanding fully how to go about booking a brewery tour or what flexibility we might have. He helped us navigate through to booking this! To be completely honest that tour was why we chose Svalbard so helping to confirm that made our trip a huge success! Thank you! That little bit of extra service is hugely appreciated and does not go unnoticed!

FLIGHTS TO SVALBARD
The flights to and from Svalbard Islands are not included. We would be happy to assist you with the flights from Oslo or Tromsø and adding optional pre or post nights the two cities for your visit.

Please note that due to the flight schedule between Svalbard and Norway, travellers are urged to spend the night in either Oslo or Tromsø before and after the trip. The weather can also be unpredictable, so extra nights are always recommended.

The summer climate in Svalbard is generally mild with average temperatures of 5 to 9° Celsius. However, Arctic conditions can cause sudden weather changes so it is recommended to bring warm, weatherproof outerwear along with thermal layers and good walking boots. Sunglasses and sunscreen are also recommended due to the long daylight exposure. A list of necessary personal equipment will be provided before arriving. For more information about weather conditions, please refer to our Svalbard travel guide.
