About

In the remote Arctic wilderness, there is only you and the nearby wildlife. We often wonder how many polar bears invisibly passes by in the polar night. Our only evidence is the observations of footprints in the snow. Embrace the polar night feeling by embarking on a 4-hour snowmobile safari in Longyearbyen surroundings. This trip is the perfect introduction to snowmobiling and will for sure tempt you back for longer trips.  

Practical information
The guide meets you at the hotel reception when the adventure starts. From here we drive to our Expedition Centre for information, briefing and distribution of snowmobiles and warm thermal clothes. The guide will inform you about the itinerary, as well as introduce you to snowmobile driving and safety. The route is depending on weather and snow conditions. The gold of the trip is to experience the magical polar night, the fun and mastering snowmobile driving, as well as search for northern lights and the best viewing point. We to take pictures along the way and refresh ourselves with warm drinks.

Snowmobiling is not recommended for people who suffer from back pain or are pregnant. This is due to your safety and health. Unfortunately, Basecamp Explorer cannot take responsibility for health issues by neglecting this advice.
