Snow Kite Camp

We let the snowmobile take us to the glacier heights of the west coast. Here we set up camp and spend a week in the snow with ski tours, snow kiting, avalanche training and igloo building. Alternatively you can read a book to relax in the incomparable peace and solitude of Spitsbergen's nature. The possibilities are manifold.
