The hunt for polar foxes and polar bears began in the late autumn, and the traps had to be inspected throughout the polar night. You'll head out on a walk through the tundra to gain an appreciation of the trapping life, and to feel what it would have been like to be out working at this time of year. The tour starts with bus transport to Todalen, and from here you'll make your way into the wilderness.
Your guide will tell you about the life of the hunters and trappers of Svalbard and you'll learn about the different techniques these hardy souls employed. Before returning to the buses and civilization, the group will enjoy a warm drink. This is an easy walk of 1 mile through easy terrain, but snow can make the conditions a little more difficult.
The expected temperature will be between 23 to 45°F, and some wind is not uncommon. Should the tour take place in the dark, each participant will be equipped with a headlight.
