Arctic Treasures

This snowmobile adventure is a solid start of your new outdoor winter activity. It will most likely tempt you back for longer snowmobile trips in Svalbard. On frozen grounds we head northeast towards the popular site Tempelfjorden. Here lies the historical trapper’s cabin of Hilmar Nøis, who completed 35 winter as a hunter in Svalbard. When time and conditions allow, we might reach all the way on top of the plateau Fjordnibba. Be awed by the view and feel thrilled as you breathe in the fresh Arctic air before heading back to Longyearbyen.



Your guide picks you up at the hotel reception at 8.30AM. When all participants are gathered, we’ll continue to our expedition centre for information and proper dressing in snowmobile clothes. Everyone drives own snowmobiles, unless you have specified to be a passenger. We do recommend driving your own engine, because it is easier to keep warm and it’s fun. We’ll make several stops on the way, to explore interesting sights and viewpoints, as well as making sure everyone is doing good. The trip includes expedition lunch, and we’ll return back to your hotel around 4.30PM.

In Svalbard, weather conditions can change quickly. We can meet heavy winds, snowstorms or thick fog, crevasses and lack of snow or ice. This means we might need to make changes to the planned route, and this might result in not arriving to the planned destination.
