Overview
Details

We drive Can-Am Outlander ATVs in a summery Svalbard Landscape. Summer in the Arctic is short and hectic with a rich animal and bird life, and it is not uncommon to see both deer and foxes. In the summer months from May to almost the end of August, we have daylight around the clock.

Join us as we drive our Can Am Outlander ATVs out into the beautiful tundra colours which are so typical of Svalbard in the summer. The Arctic summer is short and intense with a rich migratory bird population, and it is not unusual to see our tougher permanent residents the Svalbard reindeer and Arctic foxes. With daylight around the clock, it doesn’t matter if you choose the morning or the afternoon; it will be light until October.

Our trip runs out into Adventdalen, a tundra environment loaded with Arctic history and wildlife. We stick to the roads so that we might better preserve this fragile ecosystem. We stop at several points; such as the old airport to Longyearbyen, one of the mines, and up on one of the local mountain tops to catch the view over the valley and the fjord. We also stop at the Basecamp trapper’s station and dogyard, where we talk about the hunting and trapping culture in the North. We serve coffee and biscuits. There’s about 100 Alaskan Huskies at Bascamp trapper’s station, eager for your attention, so feel free to go and make some new friends.

The ATV safari is a great way to learn just a fraction of what makes Svalbard such a fantastic place to live, and we guarantee you will leave feeling enriched from the experience.
