Better Moments’ team have years of experience from working and living in Svalbard. We have worked for different guide companies in town, but are now doing things our own way.
The fall of 2013 we started Better Moments AS. Brand new equipment and new snowmobiles were purchased.In 2016 we decorated the old Dynamite storage at Kuhaugen outside Longyearbyen and are now welcoming our scooter guests here.
After a great first year, we decided to start with closed RIB boat trips along the west coast of Spitsbergen. And 2015 was our first year we offered summer activities. Summer 2016 we got our new boat and have been extending our summer offer since.
Better Moments have a maximum of 6 snowmobiles on our winter trips, and a maximum 12 persons on our boat trips. We do this so our guests get the best experience possible. More private and less hectic than the big groups in the larger companies.
If your group is bigger than this, or you want a private experience, we recommend to contact us by mail or use the contact form below.
We hope to see you soon!

Matts was born and raised south of Uppsala, Sweden. After living and working most of his lifetime in a big city, he decided a few years ago to focus more on his outdoor passion and living closer to nature. As a former high-school teacher in adventure tourism and physical education, he started in the following years working as a kayak instructor and further, as a guide on skis, snowmobiling, rafting and climbing. He has always been fascinated by the North and consequently decided to take the next step in going to Svalbard, the high Arctic. With his experience in guiding for many years and his desire to give guests the best outdoor experience they could have, he will safely guide you through your next Arctic adventure. After working many years as a nature guide for Better Moments he is now head guide and captain.
