Activity description

Be “beary” excited to take this trip across the wild, winter scenery of Svalbard!

Quench your thirst for an extreme adventure as you traverse through one of the few areas in the world where it’s possible to see polar bears in the wild (fun fact: there are actually more polar bears here than Svalbard residents!).  

As you embark on your 200 km trip, be prepared to see the natural wonders of glaciers and icebergs that’ll remind you you’re far away from home. Along the journey, you’ll have several pit stops to enjoy the arctic wilderness and to take photos of this unique excursion. And what better way to have a moment to embrace your experiences than to have a provided lunch in front of a majestic, towering glacier in front of Mohn Bay? Take this pause to be on the lookout for polar bears that you can safely spot from with binoculars!

If the conditions permit it, you’ll even have the opportunity to drive out on the sea ice and among the icebergs that have been completely frozen in the wintertime.

With the unbelievable experiences that Svalbard has to offer, make sure to book this trip!

Special terms

Please wear warm clothing. 

A mid-layer consisting of a sweater and pants in fleece or wool is advisable.

Down jackets, or other heavily insulated clothing, are not recommended beneath the snowmobile suit.

The snowmobiles do not have a storage compartment, so please bring a small backpack to store your personal items during the excursion. 

It's recommended that everyone drive their own snowmobile since it's easier than driving with a passenger.
