Summer Adventure on a snowmobile

Our summer adventure will give you a great combination of hiking and snowmobiling on Svalbard. On this trip, you will enjoy the beautiful views around Longyearbyen and of an island slowly awaking from hibernation.

We will start with a briefing at our Explorers’ club to get you ready for the trip. After that we will 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. It gets adventurous when we must cross and jump over some small streams. Up on the glacier, you will get an introduction to snowmobile driving.

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 warm drinks while we enjoy the view from the pass.

After about 30 minutes of driving, we are back down from the glacier and ready to walk down into millennia old moraine areas. If the ground is snow-free (between mid-June and October) you can find a fossil or two with a bit of luck. .

We recommend wearing warm and windproof clothes. If you don’t have high mountain boots, you can borrow snowmobile boots from us.

We require a minimum of 2 persons on this trip.
