Activity description

Join us for a trip to our Russian neighbours in Barentsburg. We will cross snow-covered mountains and wide valleys, drive over a glacier and pass hunting cabins. See the traditional Russian town of Barentsburg with a guided tour after a warm traditional Russian lunch inside. On the way both to and from Barentsburg, we will have several stops and our Guide will explain what you see around you. We can almost guarantee to see reindeer and with luck, there is also the possibility to see seals, grouse or the polar fox. With a lot of luck, we may even get to meet a polar bear.

Early in the season, the light conditions are amazing on the way back!

We pick you up from your hotel and take you to our changing room. We will give you a safety briefing and get you dressed.  After that, we will drive to our snowmobiles and show you how to operate them.  It is very easily picked up and you don’t need any prior experience. During the day we make several stops and you will have the opportunity to take pictures. Our guide will tell you whats around you and also advise about driving questions.

The trip to Barentsburg is to be recommended if you would like to bring your kids, since we  will warm up inside during lunch. After the lunch you will have the chance for a guided walk around Barentsburg.
