About

The Van Mijen Fjord is one of the largest and most scenic fjords of central Spitsbergen. There, you will experience wildlife, endless valleys, and breath-taking glaciers.

This ten-hour snowmobile trip starts from Longyearbyen, from which we will drive through Advent Valley heading south to Rein Valley, one of the most extensive and impressive areas in Svalbard. Our journey will continue by climbing up Slak Glacier and descend through the maze-like moraine in Gustav Valley.

We will then reach the Van Mijen Fjord and share a warm lunch together with the group as we enjoy the stunning view of this fjord and experience true polar solitude.

When the sea ice conditions are safe, we will proceed from Fridtjof Glacier across the fjord to Paula Glacier, with its massive and breath-taking front. Here we will explore the secrets of the sea ice, observing unique colors and intricate patterns. If we are lucky, we might at a safe distance spot a polar bear roaming on the ice!

In the afternoon, we will take a different route home over the Longyear Glacier. As we reach the top of the glacier, we’ll be met by a breath-taking view of Longyearbyen—one you won’t soon forget.

Join us for an unforgettable experience traveling through the Arctic wilderness of the Van Mijen Fjord. This adventure will captivate you!

We also have a 3-day tour which includes a visit to the Van Mijen Fjord. Read more here: https://www.poliarctici.com/activities/safari-nordenskjoldland-south-three-days
