First, I have to say that I am not one to write reviews (this is actually my first review ever on this website). However, this is now my third year coming to Svalbard and second time using the services of this company, and they are...More
An amazing week of adventures in Svalbard... awaiting my plane to go home and genuinely sad to leave. We had an amazing day snowmobiling yesterday to the Russian settlement of Berentsburg. First group of the season! The company and guides were friendly, professional, and I...More
I booked this tour and almost cancelled it since I fell ill a day before the tour. However I decided not to and just proceed with the trip. The hike was a bit rough that day due to the strong wind and slippery roads but...More
If you are wanting to go to Longyearbyen and have a great time, then do yourself a favour and book activities with this company owned by Thomas Risch. It’s always hard to know what companies to book with when you read various descriptions on line....More
A walking trip in the dark in the snow is something quite different to anything one normally experiences. Experienced and likeable guide with huskies telling the group local stories of bear hunts; having hot chocolate in an authentic tent in the middle of nowhere... Came...More

If you are planning on visiting Svalbard soley to experience snowmobiling in the Arctic, you shouldn’t plan your visit for later than the beginning of May. The weather is hard to forecast, but sometimes the winter begins to loosen its grip on Longyearbyen during this month, and that brings with it the end of the snowmobiling season. For all other visitors it is a fantastic and light month, and a favourite for those who wish to take part in our longer skiing expeditions. On May 17, Longyearbyen comes together for the national day of Norway, with many traditional costumes to be seen. This date also marks the official start of our Polar summer.

I am not sure I understood you correctly - are you actually planning dog sledding for 70-year olds? It is extremely hard and taxing. I talked to a strong and fit 27yearold woman who said she was totally exhausted and chilled to the bone after standing up all day on the dog sled and she told US not to do it!
