Autumn adventure on a snowmobile

Tour description:

On this hiking trip you will also get to drive snowmobiles on the Longyear glacier. We start with a brief in our private explorers club. Here you have to show your driving licence and we will give you a helmet. After that we’ll drive up to Nybyen, where the tour starts with a one hour hike up to the Longyear glacier. The hike is not very hard but the terrain is quite rocky, and we have to cross and jump over some small streams. When we reach the glacier, we will teach you how to drive and handle the snowmobile.

We will drive 4 km up on the glacier before we reach the pass (600 meters above sea level). From the top we will have a stunning view over Longyearbyen at the north, and the valley, Fardalen, to the south. Fardalen is surrounded with snow-covered mountains and is known as the “playground” for all local snowmobile drivers. We will have lunch and coffee while we enjoy the view from the pass.

It’s autumn, but we will recommend you to wear warm and windproof clothes. If you don’t have high mountain boots, you can borrow snowmobile boots from us.

Be aware that the first part of this trip is a hiking trip, normally we get to drive snowmobiles 30 minutes of the total time.

Better Moments operates with a maximum of 6 snowmobiles on our daily trips. If you are more than 6 drivers please contact us on and we will help you book a tailored trip instead.

We require a minimum of 2 persons on this trip.
