Join with us on an exciting and unforgettable two day snowmobile trip to Barentsburg. Witness spectacular nature, Svalbard's unique wildlife and Barentsburg, an active Russian coal mining town with a unique atmosphere.

Day 1

The first day begins with pickup from your hotel and transport down to our headquarters. Here we give a briefing about the upcoming trip and the route choices, before we dress in warm snowmobile clothing and head outside. We drive due southwest past some truly breathtaking Arctic scenery towards the Grønnfjord glaciers where we get a stunning view over Grønnfjorden and towards the south where Van Mijenfjord is, if the visibility is good. 

Day 2

After breakfast we spend the morning to look around in Barentsburg. After lunch we prepare to drive home towards Longyearbyen. We follow the coast to Colesdalen before we head further into the land for the last bit back to Longyearbyen. Our friendly and professional guides have all the experience and drive to make this an unforgettable experience, while remaining safe in such a wild and unforgiving environment. We recommend that everyone drives their own snowmobile; this is easier than driving with a passenger. This trip is dependent on weather conditions, especially early and late in the season, as well as a minimum number of participants.
