Three Polar bears in Bear Valley meant necessary and flexible detour to Adventdalen for hike with guide Kate from Poland. Very adaptable day. Relaxed, informative and good fun.

We had a trip together with Max. He did an amazing job and gudied us safe over the glacier and around Longyearbyen. Also told us many interesting stories and showed us the stunning nature. Great experience! And nice dog, you had with you! ;-)

The entire experience was exceptional. Our airport transfer was very smooth. Misha, aside from being a knowledgeable and kind person, was an amazing guide. Our familiarization tour was informative both for getting a lay of the land, but also for understanding the lifestyle of Svalbard...More
