Would you like a more in-depth tour of our Arctic Farm, but would also like to get “down and dirty” yourself to get a real feel for how everything works? If so, then this is the perfect tour for you! Our Arctic Farm Immersion Tour consists of 2 full hours of showing you the entire function and processes of our amazing farm, while at the same time letting you get your hands dirty as you work with us as well.

 

During this in-depth tour, you’ll be fully immersed in our day-to-day operations, and also get to experience what a typical daily work-flow looks and feels like. You’ll get firsthand experience of our daily tasks, processes, routines and so much more. This way you’ll find out how we produce the freshest food available in Svalbard.

 

And the fun part is getting your hands dirty! You’ll get to sow seeds for micro-greens, help with composting organic matter to feed and sift our worms, work with quails, and even see how we complete the “organic circle” using worm castings to grow some of the most amazing vegetables in Arctic! Access will include our lab, dome, workshop and gift shop as well!

 

This is THE perfect tour for you if you want to take your learning and understanding about Arctic Farming to a more “hands on” experience that you’ll never forget. At the end of the tour, you’ll even be given your own certificate for completing the tour!

Fantastic tour with incredible host!

I can not speak highly enough about our tour with Ben. He picked my husband, our 2 year old, and myself up from our hotel, having a car seat ready. He first took us on a tour of the city, including to the seed vault, before heading to his establishment. He talked with us about his history, how he’s started Polar Permaculture, and the sustainable goals he has for Svalbard. He then showed us the green house, the greens growing inside, how they handle the worms and compost, and the quails. We helped pull quails from cages for dusting and met some of the many new chicks, to the delight of my son. It was just the 3 of us on the tour, so we really got the intimate feel and the genuine love Ben has for his work. If you have the chance while in Longyearbyen, definitely don’t miss this tour which stands out amongst the slew of “northern light adventures”. I hope to return in the summer and see the amazing progress and difference in Svalbard I’m positive he will create.
