Pris kr 5400,-

We can give discount if you are several in the group.

There are thousands of mountains in Svalbard to explore. The mountains are usually 700-1000m tall. Skiing in Svalbard is exclusive because you have the whole mountain for your self. Choosing mountain is not easy when you have such opportunities. Together with the group we take a decision based upon weather-, snow- and avalanche conditions and the experience in the group. Doing it this way we can optimalize the quality of the experience for you.

You are going to drive your own snowmobile to the mountain. You don't need much experience with handling snowmobile, but you need a drivers licence (for car). If you are unsure about driving snowmobile you might be a passenger.

 

The guide meet you 8.00 in the morning at your hotel for a short briefing of weather, snow- and avalanche conditions and the plan for the day. Following waits a fantastic experience in Svalbard's wilderness. The lenght of the tour vary from 6 to 8 hours.

We recommend wearing woolen liners innermost, with one or two layers, and finishing with a shell-cover, i.e. gore-tex jacket. In your backpack you should have your down jacket. Full packing list will be sent before the trip.

On this tour you don't need much experience with ski touring, but you need to have normal good physical condition.
