Ursus MaritimusEast Coast Extreme

Embark on a unique East Coast snowmobile adventure, where we dedicate ample time to explore the untouched beauty and frozen landscapes. This extreme Arctic experience promises unforgettable moments that will linger in your memory 

In the winter months, around 3000 polar bears inhabit Svalbard, but spotting these majestic creatures is no easy feat. The best chance to witness them is on the East Coast of Spitsbergen. Our journey eastward takes us through one of Svalbard’s largest valleys and across a glacier plateau. Pausing at the glacier summit, we’ll enjoy a breathtaking view of Barents and Edgeøya.

Upon reaching the East Coast after a substantial ride, we enter the realm of polar bears, demanding our vigilance. While we lack permission to actively track them, using binoculars may offer a chance to observe the King of the Arctic from a safe distance.

Immerse yourself in the profound silence and the awe-inspiring beauty of the surrounding nature. Witness the vast expanse of sea ice and colossal icebergs extending as far as the eye can see, with immense glacier fronts reaching into the expansive sea. This is the extraordinary landscape of Svalbard.

Distinguished by its extended duration, our journey on this trip is two hours longer than our Ursus Maritimus – King of the Arctic adventure, allowing for an extended exploration of the East Coast. This extreme excursion keeps us outdoors throughout the entire day, covering approximately 200-240km. Due to the challenging nature of the trip, we recommend participants to have some prior 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. “
