Snowmobile

Everyone in Svalbard drives snowmobiles – and you should try too!

When our Arctic landscape is covered by snow, the snowmobile is a fabulous way to get around. Svalbard offer a broad range of organised tours where you can go on a longer snowmobile safari through the majestic nature to the east coast and see amazing sights like icebergs, old trappers’ huts, glacier termini and Arctic animal life.

Other snowmobile trips take you to the Russian settlement of Barentsburg or the ghost town of Pyramiden, or perhaps you would prefer a multi-day safari? There are plenty of options, including for those looking for a shorter trip to experience driving a snowmobile. On a short trip outside Longyearbyen, you can visit a beautiful ice cave or drive by snowmobile to a wilderness camp for a sumptuous dinner. Experience the authentic Svalbard while driving in the Arctic wilderness. Snowmobiles allow you to feel the freedom of covering large areas in a short space of time.

Experience snowmobiling all year

If you visit Svalbard during the Polar Night, you can go on an exotic Northern Lights chase by snowmobile. You will really experience the silence and darkness of the Polar Night as the magical Northern Lights dance over your head. Or would you prefer to experience the Midnight Sun as you drive across the snow-covered mountain plateau. Experienced guides make the trips safe and unique, and will gladly share stories about Svalbard’s animal life, geography and history along the way.Snowmobiling difficulty levels

You can drive snowmobiles in the summertime too. These trips take place on the Longyear Glacier. Although not that long, it’s certainly exotic. This trip includes a short hike up to the glacier.
