Svalbard Trekking exists to open up the Arctic to ramblers, wanderers, backpackers, trekkers and hikers from all over the world at every age and every skill level. Svalbard Trekking specialises in rough, old-school, back-country treks through the roadless Arctic wilderness for small groups of trekkers, who wish to experience something truly authentic, while learning something new along the way.
Our treks are simple, rugged, beautiful, and human-powered. We believe in the classic virtues of simplicity, self-reliance, and in cultivating a sense of adventure, while shamelessly indulging our wanderlust. For us, trekking is not entertainment, but a break from the world, mental hygiene, and a chance to explore a new land under our own steam.
Svalbard Trekking is a certified tour operator on Svalbard, and meet the safety, legal, environmental, and ethical requirements of the Governor of Svalbard. When trekking with us, you trek with a clean conscience and peace of mind.
