Amazing tour to Pyramiden. Great guide, William! We did not reach The settlement, because of ice. The boat stopped outside Pyramiden and we went for a walk on the sea ice. It was great and we did see lots of footprints from the polarbear, and...More

This was probably my favourite tour operator in Svalbard. Both trips were absolutely amazing. We saw 2 polar bears in Pyramiden (mother and cub) and a seal. The glaciers were impressive. A special mention to Alyse ( sorry if I didnt write the name correctly)...More

We had a lovely sunny day on the boat, guided by William who did an excellent job. The ice unfortunately stopped us from reaching Pyramiden but otherwise it was great.

We made the excursion to the glacier and Pyramiden in March. On the website it says that in Pyramiden you go down only if the ice and the weather conditions allow it. I'm not complaining about this but the fact that they know very well...More

Our two guides, Alyse and Lucy, were so friendly and knowledgeable. On trips like this, the guides can make the difference and in this case they did so, very much for the positive. The boat goes at a fairly slow pace so the mood is...More
