3-days Adventure Weekend at Nordenskiöld Lodge

ADVENTURE WEEKEND 3- days summer program at Nordenskiöld Lodge DAY 1 Are you ready for an Arctic adventure? Our guide will pick you up in the reception area of your hotel at 8am. There will be time to make sure you have packed all of your travel essentials into a smaller bag (waterproof bags are recommended). We head down to the harbor and get settled in the boat Get ready for some the Arctic wildlife of Svalbard at sea. The fjords are teeming with Arctic birds, walruses, seals, and belugas this time of year. We enjoy a warm lunch once at Nordenskiöld Lodge, with a spectacular view of the Nordenskiöld glacier. We explore the moraine landscape on foot and get to know the surrounding area. Your guide will be happy to share their knowledge of the area and of the glacier itself! We return to the cabin before nightfall, and you will have time to relax in the sauna before dinner is served. Accommodation in double room. DAY 2 Today is glacier day! We will introduce you to the equipment while teaching you some basic safety rules. We will provide you with all the necessary equipment for the glacier hike. The glacier is situated just a stone’s throw away, and we will have to cross a small river to get to our starting point. We hike up and down the glacier, crossing multiple smaller crevasses. There are few more beautiful places in the world to enjoy an outdoor expedition lunch. The view of Adolfbukta and Billefjorden is nothing short of spectacular. Did you know that 60% of Spitsbergen’s surface is covered by glaciers? If the weather gods are on our side, there will also be time for an afternoon kayaking trip to the glacier front. Be on the lookout for curious seals! We top off the day by a relaxing visit to the sauna, followed by a much-appreciated hot meal. Accommodation in double room. DAY 3 On this last day, you may especially appreciate waking up to the sound of the glacier, which is constantly changing. And maybe there will be an extra cup of coffee after breakfast, to enjoy the sight of the mighty ice blue that we see from the cabin. After breakfast it is time to pack before the boat that will take us back to Longyearbyen arrives. Few people want to leave this special place, but the vast majority return home with incredible memories. On the way back to civilization, we keep a lookout for marine wildlife and the land areas we pass. For Arctic sea safaris, it is necessary to pay attention. Wildlife appears suddenly and can disappear just as quickly. We often encounter various whale species in Billefjorden, and our boat captains are well trained in keeping a lookout. Enjoy the return trip, it's a great end to a special trip.
