New adventures with old legends

During this Arctic evening, we will combine some of the best aspects of Longyearbyen – nature, history and good food. We will take you on an off-road hike over the arctic tundra in the Advent valley. After the hike we will serve you a two-course dinner in our brand new “explorers club”, and tell you stories about famous arctic explorers.

Our guide will pick up at your hotel, and drive to the “old airport” outside of Longyearbyen. From here we will take you on an easy off-road hike, for about 4km along the shores of Longyearbyen’s fresh water pond. We will follow the old cableway – a relic of Longyearbyen’s mining days. It was used to transport coal from the mines directly to the harbour. We might spot some Svalbard reindeer, too. Since they heave no natural predetors on Svalbard, they are not very afraid of humans. If you join this trip in summer, we can enjoy the midnight sun in our faces as we head back towards Longyearbyen. In autumn, the specteculal colours of the sunset will highlight the features of the surrounding mountians. In late autumn, we might even see some northerns lights as we hike through the twilight towards town.

Just outside Longyearbyen, we reach our private “explorers club”, filled with legends and stories of the polar explorers. This unique venue is the perfect setting for an explorer’s dinner. Famous adventurers such as Roald Amundson, Fritjof Nansen or Umberto Nobile join us when we serve you a delicious two-course dinner. The menu is the same as the famous polar chef, Adolf Henrik Lindstrøm served on his Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. During the dessert our guide will tell you more about these heroes and their expeditions. After an adventurous evening we will drop you of at your hotel.

We require a minimum of 2 persons on this trip.

Please let us know if you have any food allergies or restrictions.
