Looking for the perfect spot, far away from light pollution and civilization? Join our Northern Lights evening adventure on snowmobile!
Drive your own snowmobile under the starry sky and be on the lookout for the Aurora which might start dancing in the sky!
This adventure is for those who seek to go further into nature to hunt for the best Aurora.
We will start our trip from town where we will dress up in suitable clothing and all
necessary safety equipment. After we are all set, we will drive with a small group out into the wilderness of Svalbard. Away from the light pollution we will search the sky for the magical Northern Lights. We will pass the massive valleys to finally reach a magical frozen waterfall. From here we are sheltered to enjoy our warm drinks whilst we lay on our back to watch the sky. Our guide will tell you interesting stories about Svalbard and the magical Aurora.
Make sure to go on this trip with a fully charged battery on your phone and camera and bring extra.
When the lights start to dance, you do not want to miss it!

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!
