Experience the magic of being in the Arctic wilderness! Join a wilderness evening at Camp Barentz, a very special experience which you really should experience during your stay in Longyearbyen.

The discoverer of Svalbard
Camp Barentz boasts an amazing location right below Mine 7, at the foot of the mountain Breinosa. One of the buildings at the camp, Barentz Hus, is a copy of the cabin that the discoverer of Svalbard, Willem Barentz, overwintered in on Novaya Zemlya in 1596. At Camp Barentz, we often see Svalbard reindeer, and even grouse and foxes if you are lucky, and the hosts are prepared in the unlikely event a polar bear should get close.

As we arrive at the cosy wooden cabins we will be met by the evening’s host. Good drinks and a delicious homemade reindeer stew will be served, together with campfire coffee and dessert. Welcome to a real Svalbard meal!

Learn all about the polar bear 
After a tasty dinner, it is time to learn more about the King of the Arctic. Whilst sitting around the bonfire, the host will share information and photos about our most famous residents. Here you’ll learn lots of new fun facts about polar bears.

Practical information
The price includes transport from your accommodation, reindeer soup, drinks, campfire coffee, homemade cake and presentation about polar bears.

We recommend wearing comfortable, warm outdoor clothing and warm shoes, since there can be a cold draught from the floor. Remember that we will spend some time outdoors also. Clothes may smell of smoke after the tour.

Safety is our highest priority, and the guide needs to be able to give directions you understand. To participate on one of our excursions, it is required that you speak and understand English or one of the Scandinavian languages.
