Better Moments #1 TripAdvisor 2016

On this special east coast snowmobile trip, we get more time on the magnificent east coast, where the nature is untouched and the land frozen solid. This extreme experience in the Arctic will be hard to forget.

There are about 3000 polar bears in Svalbard during the winter months. However, it is not easy to spot one of these fantastic creatures. The best chance of seeing one, is on the east coast of Spitsbergen. To get there we need to drive through one of the largest valleys of Svalbard and across the glaciers towards the east. At the top of the glaciers we will stop to admire the view of Barents- and Edgeøya.

After a long ride, we will arrive at the east coast. Here we need to be on guard. This is the realm of the polar bears. We don't have permission to track down polar bears, but if we use our binoculars we might get the opportunity to observe these majestic creatures from a distance.

Sea ice and huge icebergs as far as the eyes can see, and enormous glacier fronts advancing into the sea. Here we will enjoy the deafening silence and the magnificence of nature. This is Svalbard.

This trip is 2 hours longer than our Ursus Maritimus – King of the Arctic trip, meaning that we will get more time on the east coast. This is an extreme trip where we stay outside the whole day. We are going to drive around 200-240km, so we recommend that you have some snowmobile experience.
