Your hiking and snowmobiling in Svalbard tour begins at your accommodations in Longyearbyen, where you and your group (a maximum of 8 people) will be picked up (please specify when booking). Upon your arrival at the base, you'll meet your seasoned guide who will give a safety and itinerary briefing.

On top of the Longyear Glacier, you'll receive an introduction to snowmobiling and snowmobile driving techniques.

With this iconic backdrop, you'll be treated to a delicious lunch with hot drinks. Next, you'll descend the glacier via snowmobile (30 minutes) and explore the ancient moraine areas on foot. If luck is on your side, you may spot one of Svalbard's diverse species of wildlife!
