Clothing and equipment

In spite of Spitsbergen’s northern location, the archipelago has a relatively mild climate compared to other areas on the same latitude. In summer, the average temperature in Longyearbyen is approximately 5 ° C. There is normally very little rain, although it is not unusual that there is fog and low clouds. Even if there is little rain, the ground is often wet due to the melting snow. The weather on Svalbard changes quickly, and local variations can be huge – so it is better to have little bit too much clothes with you. Below you can find our packing advise for your adventure in Svalbard.

Note

Safety

Isfjord Radio is a wilderness hotel and to move outside you need a guide with rifle for polar bear protection.

Weather conditions in Svalbard

In Spitsbergen, weather conditions can change quickly. We can meet heavy winds, snowstorms or thick fog, crevasses and lack of snow or ice. This means we might need to make changes to the planned route, and this might lead up us not arriving to the planned destination. It can also mean that we need to use a different transportation style or accommodation than what was described in the program. We will always do our outmost to give our guests a great experience in the Arctic, but we must be aware that characteristics of the destination.
