Follow in the footsteps of polar heroes Nansen and sleep expedition style. Heated wooden teepee with an atmosphere of trapper's history, warm sleeping bags and Alaskan Huskies as your polarbear watch. During the trip we aim to give you the best chance to catch the northern lights.

Day 1: Your guide will pick you up at your hotel at 5 pm. You will have time to sit down with the guide, talk about the coming trip, possible routes and needed equipment. After the meeting we will give you warm clothing, like the overall and winter boots, and then head to the snowmobiles. Only the headlight from you snowmobile will be lighting the snow-covered mountainsides. We make a slow start to get used to driving the snowmobiles. After a short ride we arrive to Trapper’s Station, where we are welcomed by eager Alaskan Huskies. We meet the dogs and learn more about trapper’s history at Spitsbergen. Dinner is served inside the warm trapper’s cabin where we share stories in an authentic
athmosphere. Outside Longyearbyen we don’t have the light pollution, which give us a view to the polar sky and the stars sprinkled across. We also may experience the northern light dancing on the sky. Nights can be cold, but for that, we have warm expedition sleeping bags to keep you warm. Shared accommodation in the wooden teepee.
​​​​DAY 2: Wake-up and breakfast is served. Svalbard in one of the few places you can spot northern lights at daytime. After breakfast, we explore the area with our snowmobiles. Snack is served, and there will be interesting photo stops during the trip. Return to Longyearbyen around 1 pm.
