Join us on a trip through Svalbard's magnificent nature. The East coast is wild and beautiful and known as the kingdom of the Polar Bear.
Our trip starts at 08:30 a.m. driving from Longyearbyen to our basecamp. After a safety briefing and changing into the right clothes, we drive towards the majestic and untouched East coast. Crossing enormous valleys and by snow covered glaciers, we will make several stops to really take in this beautiful nature. There will also be plenty of opportunities for taking amazing photos. We will have a (hot)lunch stop on the sea ice in front of the mighty glacier Mohnbukta. There we will also scout for the king of the Arctic. In here, the polar bear decides! We are not going to seek out polar bears, but if we use our binoculars well, we may be able to observe this majestic animal from a safe distance. Other wildlife we can encounter are the Arctic fox, reindeers and perhaps seals.
When the conditions are good enough, we take a trip out on the ice and drive among the icebergs that have frozen solid for the winter. When it’s clear weather we can overlook the Barents and Edge islands, two remote islands in the far east.
We enjoy the arctic silence, the untouched nature with its wildlife, the sea ice and the icebergs. This is Svalbard at its very best!
