Evening snowmobile tour to historical Colesbay - Snowfox Travel


Join us for the perfect evening activity, exploring a historical part of Spitsbergen by snowmobile, whilst watching the sun set low over beautiful Colesbay.

Drive with us through stunning valleys and over high glaciers and learn more about the abandoned Soviet settlement in Colesbay.

On this trip you will experience a diverse landscape with amazing views under the everlasting evening sun on Svalbard!

We start at 18:00 (6.00pm), where we will pick you up from your accommodation.
After a safety briefing and changing into the right clothes, we will start our snowmobile adventure.

Our journey will start with a short drive through town towards Longyearbreen, we will drive up the glacier and will already be amazed by the view we will have over town on one side and the mountains on the other side. Don’t forget to take photos of the lowering sun touching the mountains, giving amazing purple colors!

We will continue our route to Colesbay driving our snowmobile through a diverse landscape of valleys, mountains and far sights.
At Colesbay we will take our time to explore this interesting place, taking photos and enjoying our warm drinks and evening snacks under the midnight sun of Svalbard. A perfect evening in true Arctic surroundings!

What to bring:
Warm clothes under your snowmobile suit (preferably several layers of wool), a pair of thin gloves or mittens to wear under your driving mittens.

Down jackets, etc. are not recommended under the snowmobile suit.

Our snowmobiles do not all have storage boxes, so we recommend that you bring a small backpack for your camera, extra clothes, etc. We recommend that everyone drives their own snowmobile, as this is easier than traveling with a passenger.

Remember to bring a driving license for a car, motorcycle or snowmobile valid for Svalbard!
