Darkness Exposed

Half day winter adventure on snowmobile

Join us for a snowmobile trip through the dark polar night on Spitsbergen. In the wilderness it’s just you and surrounding mountains. Faint light peeking over the mountains gives you idea of the south, rest of the world is filled with the arctic polar night .

Program

Experience the darkness of the Polar night from a snowmobile, driving through valleys, getting out of town and into the arctic wilderness. The guide meets you at your hotel and we drive to our storage were the guide tells you more about the coming trip, safety rules and give you a lesson in how to drive a snowmobile. You will get all the essential equipment you need to keep you warm and enjoying the day ahead. And off we go. The darkness seams endless and the arctic silence is overpowering. We plan a route based on the conditions. Our goal is to experience the magic of the polar night, the excitement of snowmobile driving, hopefully see some wildlife, and find a nice spot with a view. We stop during the trip and enjoy a hot drink and some biscuit.

This trip is not suitable for persons suffering from back pains. Pregnant women cannot participate on any snowmobile safaris arranged by Basecamp Spitsbergen. Basecamp takes no responsibility to any health issues, due to neglecting this advice.

In Spitsbergen, weather conditions can change quickly. We can meet heavy winds, snowstorms, thick fog, crevasses and lack of snow or ice. This means we might need to make changes to the planed route, and this might lead up us not arriving to the planned destination. It can also mean that we need to use a different transportation style or accommodation than what was described in the program.

Combine your stay with accommodation at the most unique hotel at Longyearbyen – Basecamp Hotel
