About us

Discover Svalbard

Our company

Discover Svalbard is a Family business runned by Tarjei Våtvik and Daiane Freitas.

Tarjei, is borned and raised in Longyearbyen and has good knowledge about Svalbard . His parents still live on Svalbard and own Svalbard Villmarkssenter AS, also a tourism business.

Daiane is from Rio de Janeiro, and she came to Svalbard in 2008. Both of them have been working with tourism for about 10 years.

We make all activities that exists on Svalbard visible for those arriving. We collaborate with several tour operators on Svalbard, which means that we can offer a wide range of activities – both summer and winter. Our idea is to simplify the work on finding what to do here. Also, guests can name what they would like to do, and we will do everything in our power to make sure they get that.  At least, that they get the best Svalbard experience, when they leave the island, according with the possibilities. 

We can help with accommodation, day trips, expeditions, food experience, scooter rental, tour equipment or transportation. Whether you are here on your own, with your family or your company, we can tailor the arrangements for you.

We gladly help with organization and execution of logistical tasks such as transportation, research, filming, photography or minor tasks.
