Join a certified mountain guide on an exotic 9-day adventure across the Artic Svalbard fjords in northern Norway. Ski on different spots in the immense Spitsbergen Island, with the chance of spotting amazing Arctic animals.
If you are looking for a fun and exotic skiing adventure, this trip is for you! We will ski during the day and rest in a comfortable boat at night in the middle of an almost untouched Artic landscape.
With a surface area of 37,673 square kilometers, Spitsbergen (1,717 m) is the largest island in Norway and the 36th largest in the world. It is the only populated island in the Svalbard archipelago, located in the Artic Ocean, halfway between continental Norway and the North Pole.
Our meeting point will be Longyearbyen, Svalbard’s largest city and administrative center, and the northernmost city in the world. Once boarded on the “Polaris 1” boat, during 8 days we will sail through massive fjords and glaciers rising from the sea. Every day we will stop at a different part of the Spitsbergen Island for a new skiing tour.
One of the highlights of this trip is Svalbard’s exquisite wildlife. Its great tundra plains and mountains, glaciers and fjords host polar bears, seals, reindeers, foxes, and several types of migratory seabirds, which we hope to see along the way!
The “Polaris 1” has space for a maximum of 12 guests and 3 mountain guides. It offers cozy 1- and 2-bed cabins, all of them with windows and private bathroom. To make this trip even better, every night, after a long skiing day, a French chef on board will delight us with great food and wine.
Join me on this unique skiing adventure engaging the 5 senses. Book your trip now!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
