About

​​​​​​In autumn, the snow is first to return on the mountain tops and up on the glaciers. When this happens, it is time for us to hike up, get on our snowmobiles and start having fun.

We will start with a briefing at our Explorers’ club to get you ready for the trip. After that we will drive up to Nybyen where the tour starts, with a one hour hike up to the Longyear glacier. The hike is not very hard but the terrain is quite rocky. It gets adventurous when we must cross and jump over some small streams. Up on the glacier, you will get an introduction to snowmobile driving.

We will drive 4 km up on the glacier before we reach the pass (600 meters above sea level). From the top, we will have a stunning view over Longyearbyen at the north, and the valley, Fardalen, to the south. Fardalen is surrounded with snow-covered mountains and is known as the “playground” for all local snowmobile drivers. We will have lunch and coffee while we enjoy the view from the pass.

We will recommend wearing warm and windproof clothes. If you don’t have high mountain boots, you can borrow snowmobile boots from us. Be aware that the first part of this trip is a hiking trip, normally we get to drive snowmobiles 30 minutes of the total time.

We require a minimum of 2 persons on this trip.
