The remote island of Svalbard is located far out in the Arctic Ocean, basically between Norway and the North pole, which makes it one of the Northernmost settlements in the world. On this unique snowmobile trip, you will discover the stunning landscape, exciting wildlife and beautiful wilderness of this magical place on earth.
Svalbard during spring, when the long Polar Nights are finally over, is simply amazing. The vast mountains and valleys which haven’t seen anything but darkness since November will finally be illuminated by sunshine. The white snow will turn into a mixture of incredible colours.
Enjoy beautiful sunsets followed by magical lights – blue and pink colours will reflect everywhere on the snow-covered landscape.
On your snowmobile, you will explore different spots in the Arctic wilderness. For example the viewpoint of Hiorthfjellet, from where you can enjoy breathtaking views over the vast Isfjord and the city of Longyearbyen.
You will visit a cosy cabin hidden in the valley. Enjoy an authentic three-course dinner and warm up at a bonfire. Once you feel energized again, you will drive to the 30-kilometre long valley of Adventdalen.
Your personal guides during this trip will decide on the perfect route for the day. They will make sure you will get an authentic nature trip in the Arctic and can fully enjoy the colourful spectacle on the ice.
