East Coast - Poli Arctici
Join us on this popular day excursion to the stunning East Coast of Spitsbergen.
Join us on an excursion to the East Coast and be amazed by Spitsbergen’s remote wilderness!
On this day trip, we will leave the comforts of Longyearbyen to experience the complete solitude of the Arctic environment. Driving snowmobiles through spectacular valleys, traversing glaciers, and crossing frozen fjords are all part of our route to the East Coast. All the while, we are surrounded by rugged, snow-covered mountains.
Once we reach the East Coast of Spitsbergen, we will enjoy the extraordinary landscape and incredible wildlife. This route is popular because it brings us to areas of Spitsbergen where the likelihood of spotting polar bears is higher than near Longyearbyen. As we travel, we'll hope to have a sighting. If we are lucky, we might observe a bear at a safe distance.
From the comfort of our snowmobiles, we will explore rugged coastlines with stunning views, visit breath-taking glacier fronts, and drive across the sea ice to discover otherworldly shapes and colors under the arctic light.
A valid driver’s licence for car or motorbike is required to drive a snowmobile. Remember to take it with you on the tour. The passenger does not need to have a driver’s licence.
