I expected a lot more of exchange for the extremely high price. The guids where professional and nice, but the organizers should either include more activities or reduce the price by half at least.

You haven't specified what you mean with wildlife, but I'll try to provide an answer anyway. You'll most likely see Svalbard reindeer, they are wild but not very shy and they can typically be found close to tow. Polar foxes... More
