Description de l'activité
Now you have the opportunity to do something very few people have done before you. Spitzbergen Adventures is offering regular flights with a hot air balloon over the Norwegian island of Svalbard.
Over 50% of the surface of Svalbard is covered by glaciers – there are more than 2100 small and large glaciers here and nearly 60% of the land area is covered by ice.
This is a fantastic possibility to experience something both special and exclusive. Silence, nature, amazing mountain landscapes and unique adventures. With Spitzbergen Adventures you'll see it all from the air; fascinating, and yet, in totally safe surroundings.
You'll be picked up at your hotel and dropped back off at the end of the day.
The means of transportation to the balloon will depend on the daily weather conditions, but will generally be, where possible, by snowmobile. As you have the chance to take the wheel yourselves, the designated drivers among the passengers need to bring a valid car driving license. It should also be noted that Norway has a zero alcohol limit for drivers.
Spitzbergen Adventures' collaborator has many years of experience as a balloon pilot and the company is used to flying in an arctic environment.

The time you spend in the balloon will be around 2-3 hours (1 to 1.5h flight time), including a preparation of the balloon together with the crew. The total package will give you a whole day trip.
The team will take care of your requirements and serve warm drinks and a warm field lunch.Conditions particulières
There are only 6 places available per day on this very exclusive trip, so don’t delay in signing up, because the tours will rapidly book out.
Further details and small print:
The exact program is dependent on the weather. In the event that the weather makes ballooning too dangerous, the team will make an alternative snowmobile excursion to one of the many beautiful destinations at Svalbard.
In the unlikely event that the weather is too bad for any activity, it could be that this single trip will be cancelled. Due to the complexity of this tour and the special demand involved in the logistics, it’s necessary to apply some special terms, in addition to the normal conditions.
If the weather is too bad for a balloon ride, but good enough for snowmobile driving, you'll still take a tour. 3.900NOK of the tour price will be refunded to you. Should the weather be too bad for any activity, 5.500NOK will be refunded to you.
