When do you have the possibility to go to Russia just for a couple of hours? Join us for a great day out and we will give it our best to make your day as memorable as possible. The distance is approx. 55km one way.

We will cross snow covered mountains and wide valleys, drive over a glacier and pass hunting cabins. On the way we will have several stops which gives you plenty of opportunities to take pictures. We will see reindeers and with a little bit of luck we also could see the polar fox or seals.

When in Barentsburg you will be served a nice warm lunch at the hotel or brewery and after words you will be taken on a guided tour with a local guide around the town. If the snow and weather conditions allow it, we will choose a different route back to Longyearbyen.

The tour is absolutely gorgeous and quite easy to drive with both long and flat valleys but also some rugged terrain. . Previous snowmobile experience is an advantage, and a full briefing will be given before the tour starts. 

If you have any food allergies please let us know before the tour.

For our guests who need glasses we recommend to switch to contacts prior to the tour.

A valid driver’s license for car or motorbike is required to drive a snowmobile. Remember to take it with you on the tour. The passenger does not need to have a driver’s license.

We need a minimum of 2 drivers in order to do the tour.

We guarantee you that the group will not be bigger than 6 snowmobiles (larger groups only upon request) 

 

Our company has decided NOT to follow the recommendation to avoid services of Trust Arktikugol in Barentsburg and Pyramiden based on the following: 
The population in Barentsburg and Pyramiden consists of more than 70% Ukrainians and the money generated through tourism goes directly back into the town to enhance the living standard for the people living there.
We think it is better to support the residents.
Barentsburg and Pyramiden shows that it is possible to exist peacefully side by side regardless of nationality or religion.
