We booked the Tuna glacier speed boat excursion, and it was a wonderful and unforgettable experience. An amazing glacier, lots of beluga whales, walrus – great! Everything worked perfectly, from booking, to pick-up at the hotel, and most of all on board: The boat was in excellent condition, and is the best way to get close to the glacier. Marina and Anja were excellent and kind guides, fun to be with, and of course they were always the first to spot animals. Regarding clothes, do as they tell you, and wear several layers: We were lucky with sun and little winds, still the multi-layer clothing was absolutely necessary. Be aware that they provide you with an overall boat-jumpsuits, which you put on over your jacket and all, and which are really useful. We did not get cold throughout the whole day, but only because of several layers of clothes. In case you wonder to also wear that additional jumper: wear it. The day is a unique and fun experience, but make sure you are properly dressed. On a side-note: Prior to coming to Svalbard, when I first got in contact with Poli Arctici, Anja was always responsive and really helpful, also regarding the organization of other trips. Highly recommended!

We had an expedition to Pyramiden (and the glacier in front of it) and an excursion to Sarkofagen (the mountain close to Longerbayen). Both these activities were really outstanding and managed by the Poli Artici's staff in an extremely professional way! The crew in the first expedition to Pyramiden (Ana and Marina) was truly kind and competent. The trip was awesome and Marina and Ana also showed us many animals along the route! The excursion to Sarkofagen was led by Giovanni, a professional alpine guide working at Poli Artici, and this experience was great as well (during this excursion Giovanni showed us many interesting locations and we always had the feeling to be in super safe hands). The last day of our sejour in Longerbayen we also visited Poli Artici's museum. This is a small museum, run by the Poli Artici's founder Stefano Poli, that you HAVE TO visit. it illustrates the history of the expeditions to the North Pole. It is very well organized and full of original material from these expeditions. You will find many many curiosities there... we have learned a lot. Surely, this is also a must-see in Longerbayen (when you are not busy with other activities). We had other experiences with other travel agencies in Longerbayen but Poli Artici is absolutely the best. We strongly recommend them! Dani & Lucia (from Italy)

We had amazing two hikes with Poli Arctici during our stay! Maiken, the guide, is so friendly, great to talk to and knowledgeable. Real pleasure to spend time with her and her beautiful dog Baloo ;) Exchange with Stefano and organisation of walks was really easy. He is very reactive and nice. I highly recommend Poli Arctici to everyone.
