We made several trips with this organisation and all were great. One little hick-up was dealt with in a fantastic way.

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! ;-)

Well run, good guide. We had a great paddle. The midnight sun peeked out, and we had some delicious hot drinks when we pulled in across the fjord. Fun evening.
