Experience true Arctic Treasure, on a snowmobile ride to the blue glacier front of Von Post and Tuna glacier.
Experience true Arctic Treasure; the blue glacier front of ‘‘Von Post’’ and ‘‘Tuna’’ glacier in Tempelfjord. The guide meets you at your hotel and we drive to our storage were the guide tells you more about the coming trip, safety rules and give you a lesson in how to drive a snowmobile. You will get all the essential equipment you need to keep you warm and enjoying the day ahead. And off we go. We plan a rout based on the conditions. Our goal is to experience the arctic scenery with the Templemountains, the excitement of snowmobile driving, wildlife like seal, arctic fox, reindeer and the king of the arctic; Polar bear, and to see the majestic glacier fronts. We also make a stop at the Basecamp North Pole Camp. Our chef has prepared a warm lunch to enjoy in our expedition tent. Have a taste of the arctic like one of the old explorers. Arrival back in Longyearbyen in the afternoon.
