Longyearbyen (SJ) - Longyearbyen (SJ)

03 July - 14 July 2021

Svalbard Expedition 2. This trip takes you around the famous island of Svalbard (Spitsbergen). Explore the arctic conditions around you, look out for reindeer, arctic foxes, walruses and birds. Expect low temperatures, long days and pristine conditions of the place rarely visited by humans. Bring rubber boots and warm clothing! Send a postcard from the northernmost post office in the world, tour the glaciers, visit beautiful fjords. The itinerary below is subject to changes due to weather conditions and other safety issues. The journey ends at 12:00 pm but we advise you book a flight home a bit later as a precaution. Better yet, book a place on Longyearbyen Camping and spend some time discovering on your own! Prices include €15 administration fee. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years (younger Windseekers on request, when accompanied by an adult).

Ports

Longyearbyen is a capital of Norwegian Svalbard archipelago, located on the Spitsbergen island. If you want to experience the arctic climate, although tempered by a warm current, Spitsbergen is the place to visit. Look for seabirds, reindeer and marine mammals but watch out for polar bears! Don’t be fooled by the town’s remote location and small size: you can find there two museums, art galleries and a cinema.
