2 days Isfjorden kayak adventure: two days expedition with overnight in tent
Our popular mini expedition:
Would you like to explore Svalbard's nature by kayak and are you curious about what it is like to sleep in a tent under the midnight sun? Come and join us on our two day kayak adventure in Adventfjorden and Isfjorden. Experience an interesting contrast between organized society including cultural remnants and pristine wild nature. Adventfjorden and Isfjorden offer it all.
On the first day we pack our kayaks with the necessary equipment we need and start paddling from our warehouse by the sea out into Adventfjorden. This fjord is one of Svalbard’s most historical fjords surrounded by mountains up to 1000 mas. When paddling out of adventfjorden we loose sight of Longyearbyen and paddle into Svalbard biggest fjord, Isfjorden. We make our way into Isfjorden and aim to set up camp close to Carolinedalen. How far we will come depends on the wind- and weather conditions. After establishing camp we serve dinner outside in nature and enjoy endless views of Isfjorden. The following morning we have breakfast and pack the camp leaving no trace behind. We paddle towards Adventfjorden again and take some time to explore the cultural remains in Advent city and Hiorthamn. At last we paddle across Adventfjorden again and arrive back in Longyearbyen.
Challenging weather and wind may change the destination of this to Bjørndalen area.
