Your guide will be in nearby, and function as your polar bear guard for the night. As will 80 Alaskan Huskies.
Day 2 Longyearbyen
Start the day with breakfast in the hut. If the snow conditions are good, harness the dogs for a sledge trip in the Bolter Valley. Your guide will of course give you instructions. With less snow you will go for a hike instead. With the Trappers station located outside of Longyearbyen, means you have less light pollution, and better conditions for spotting the northern lights. Svalbard in one of the few places you can spot northern lights at daytime. After the trip, head back to Longyearbyen, and check in at the Trappers hotel for the next nights. We recommend dinner at Kroa restaurant next door. Overnight at the Trappers Hotel.
