On this ski expedtion we head north towards the northernmost settlement in the world: Ny-Ålesund. Through a glacial landscape between Isfjorden and Kongsfjorden.
Make your way from Borebukta to Ny-Ålesund during the long days of the midnight sun, where every day offers a new adventure! At this time of year, the midnight sun never sets, allowing us to explore both day and night. After spending the first night in Longyearbyen we will be transported by boat to Borebukta. This is where the real adventure begins.
We will strap on our skis and head into Trollheimen, an impressive area between Isfjorden and Kongsfjorden, far from civilisation and everyday life. This area is hard to get to, and is rarely visited by snowmobiles. Here we will be able to enjoy the amazing quiet that is only found in the Arctic.
Over six days we will be in the middle of Svalbard's characteristic landscape: Fjords and glaciers, nunataks and mountains. Since we'll be skiing in the midnight sun, we take the most demanding stages at a comfortable tempo.
This expedition will go over massive glacier plateaus to Kongsvegen with a new campsite every night. On the final day of skiing, we arrive in the magnificent Kongsfjorden where MS Nordstjernen will take us to Ny-Ålesund and back to Longyearbyen the last day.
