SLEDGE and ICE CLIMBING; challenge yourself inside ice cave
Are you fit and sporty?
Where the others stop, we keep exploring. We are happy to offer you the chance to explore the ice cave on the Glacier in a different way.
We will with the help of ropes, crampons and climbing gear explore this magical frozen world further deep into the glacier
The ice caves on Svalbard are long melt water channels from the glaciers during the summer. When these freeze during the winter it opens up a whole different world inside the glacier with hall's, frozen waterfalls, tight passages and ice crystals.
We will reach the cave rapidly with the help of a SLUFFE (sledge transported by a snow scooter) in order to maximise the time, we can spend inside the cave and also to reduce the pollution, we are going to use only 1 engine.
Once inside the melt water channel the feeling will be that the times stops, and without any rush we will explore all channels and look at the different crystals, tunnel and formations that the nature built up for the one willing to explore.
