Ursus MaritimusEast Coast Extreme

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

About 3000 polar bears are living in Svalbard during the winter months. However, it is not easy to spot one of these majestic animals. We will have the best chance of seeing one, on the east coast of Spitsbergen. Heading towards the east, we will drive through one of the largest valleys of Svalbard and across a glacier plateau. At the top of the glacier we will stop to enjoy a fantastic view of Barents- and Edgeøya.

After a long ride, we will arrive at the east coast. Here, it is the realm of the polar bears, therefore we need to be on guard. We don’t have permission to track down polar bears, but if we use our binoculars we might get the opportunity to observe the King of the Arctic from a safe distance.

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

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

“The best experience I have ever had! Not only did we make it to the stunning East Coast, we were privileged to see not one, but four Polar Bears. “
