Hike to explore the Ice Cave

with Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions

Join us for a wonderful trip inside the glacier! You will find a magical world: ice tunnels that have been shaped during the summertime by the melting of ice and snow.

The trip will start from the upper part of town, Nybyen, and we will start to hike up to the Lars glacier.

After hiking uphill for approx. Two hours and covering about 350 msl, we will reach the entrance of the cave. Before entering it, we will dress up with safety equipment and headlamps.  

The visit in the ice cave will start; we will discover halls, tight passages and thick layers of ice crystals. The guide will show you the layers of the glacier and will bring you to know all the caves secrets.
