Frozen: Explore a frozen world in the ice cave
Arranged by Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions
Inside the glaciers at Svalbard you will find another world, a world filled with ice that has been shaped in the summertime by melting ice and snow through the water melting channels.
Ice Cave Tour – We start from the top of town in Nybyen and walk up to the glacier. After hiking uphill for ca 2 hours and covering 350 highmeters we reach the entrance to the cave. Here we will dress us with safety equipment like helmet, spikes and head light before we continue down to the cave.
Inside the glacier we spend time to experience the cave with halls, tight passages and thick layers of ice crystals.
The trip is moderately difficult, some mountain hiking and some crawling in the cave can be expected. The trip does not fit for guests with back problems, claustrophobia or poor physical shape.
In the ice cave we serve something warm to drink and biscuits.
We recommend bringing a backpack with something to drink during the hike, extra warm clothes, extra space for gear (spikes, helmet and a headlamp) and solid hiking boots for winter conditions.
