    Snowkitecamp Svalbard

    Snowkite- and Ski-Camp

    March - May

    Once a year we go out by snowmobile into the vast and rugged nature of Spitsbergen. We set up camp and spend a week in the snow with snowkiting, ski touring, avalanche training and igloo building. The activities will be adapted to the weather conditions. Cooking will be done together and all guests will participate in the nightly polar bear watch.

    Private tour:

    For groups we are happy to offer private tours, which can be freely designed in terms of content. Together we can put together a program exactly according to your wishes and ideas. A private tour is somewhat more expensive, but offers many advantages and privileges both in the program design, as well as in the implementation of the trip here on Svalbard.

    Discover the Arctic privately with your friends!
