The tour is always dependent on weather conditions, as the weather on tours in the Arctic Svalbard can be highly unstable and difficult to predict. In regards to wildlife there is absolutely no guarantee that they will appear, but we will do our outmost to be at the best location at the right time.
That being said, there are plenty of other options in case plan A fails. Plan B could very well turn out to be even better.
