  • Itinerary

    After you have been picked up at the accommodation by the guide, given all the information about the trip and gone through our safety briefing, we drive to our cabin, which is also the closest to the East Coast of all private cabins and completely secluded.

    Travelling from Longyearbyen in the evening, the snowmobile tour begins in relatively gentle terrain and we are quickly out of the city's light pollution coming into the beautiful, arctic winter wonderland where the starry sky emerges above us. On the way, you also get a good feel for how the snowmobile behaves and get to know how to handle different driving conditions from fluctuating riverbeds to open fjords closer to the coastline.

    Once at the accommodation, we have a warm dinner and spend the night in the "Fulmarhytta". A night in the "Fulmarhytta" offers a pleasant stay in true trapper's style, with a cozy atmosphere and wilderness interior. The cabin is the ideal starting point for the next day's magnificent adventure in the kingdom of the polar bear - a once in a lifetime experience!

    The following morning, we serve a good breakfast before the trip continues out to the East Coast. The aim is to be the first group to arrive in this spectacular landscape where our winter wonderland meets the sea ice, so that you can really get the feeling of being alone in the magnificent arctic wilderness.

    The East Coast is one of the hunting grounds for polar bears and is a very special area with glaciers, valleys and coastline where there is often sea ice. 

    After a full experience of Svalbard's wild nature to the East, we turn around and head back to Longyearbyen and you will be transported back to your accommodation after all is sorted with the snowmobiles. Then it is time to relax, soak in the impressions and perhaps enjoy a well-deserved dinner.
