Your local driver will guide you through the major local attractions. The tour begins in the Longyear Valley and explores the town before heading out to Adventdalen towards Mine 7. During the drive through the valley participants are often rewarded with a sighting of the local Svalbard reindeer, and during the summer months thousands of migratory birds converge on the delta. The tour will also point out the coal mines in the Advent Valley.
Next on the tour is the area around the airport and Hotellneset, as well as a visit to the site of the Global Seed Vault. The guide will talk about the attractions, flora, fauna and landscape throughout the tour, and stops will be made for photo sessions.
