A few hours evening hike from Longyearbyen, up and into the ice cave, and back down to town. Visiting inside the ice cave, with its ice formations, is a great experience. The hike also offers a nice view from above of Longyearbyen and across Adventfjorden....More

Fantastic ice-cave tour with the well experienced and informative tour guide Monica. With her experience about Svalbard and its surroundings she made the tour to a real lifetime memory. 13/4-16
