Activity description

Svalbard is the Northernmost inhabited place on the planet and besides its rich wildlife, fantastic snow landscapes and ancient glaciers, it's known for the incredible phenomenon of the Midnight Sun. Between the summer months from April to July, the sun doesn't go down. There are even days with 24 hours of sunshine! Can you believe it?

During this exciting snowmobile trip, you will witness the surreal Midnight Sun from various spots out in the wild. Driving in the middle of the night, in broad daylight, will be a very special experience.

The tour will start in Longyearbyen and will lead you through the glistering, snow-covered landscape of Spitsbergen and surroundings.

Your expert guides for this trip will decide on the perfect route for the day. They will make sure you get the best experience in the Arctic and can fully enjoy the stunning Midnight Sun.
