Cold? Don't worry! The town of Honningsvag is on the island of Mageroya, washed by the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, which causes Barents Sea water to not freeze and average temperatures are not too low. The island in the middle of winter presents a temperature that oscillates between the 0ºC and the -4ºC, being able to arrive in rare occasions until the -10ºC. That makes this island an ideal place to perform arctic activities without suffering extreme temperatures.
The price includes:
Transfer of guests.
Snowshoes and poles.
Sleeping bags and mats.
Access to Elvebakken for shower and rest before and after departure.
Minimum clothing required (not included):
Water repellent pants.
Waterproof suitable footwear.

An entrepeneur and adventure leaving on the top of the world.
Born in sunny Spain, I was attracted to Polar areas from a young age. I worked as a tourist guide specialising in Europe, North Africa and Arctic regions. I climbed over 100 summits in the Andes. As well in Africa, South East Asia, New Zealand, Tasmania, Australia, Alaska and Mexico.
I spend 4 winters backpacking on Asia
As an individual explorer, I had completed crossings across Greenland, the Baltic Sea, Patagonia's North Icecap, Lappland or Svalbard.
I moved to Norway 10 years ago, where I currently lives and runs “Artico Ice Bar” together with my wife, Gloria.
I have a wonderfull dog named Lonchas. Most of my videos are with him
