Darkness Exposed

In the wilderness, it is only you and the wildlife existing in the surrounding landscape. During the darkest season of the year, we often wonder how many polar bears that invisibly passes by, only to leave us with curiosity. Our single proof is the observations of footprints. Embrace the feeling of driving through a picturesque postcard by embarking on a 4-hour snowmobile safari in Longyearbyen surroundings. It is the perfect introduction to snowmobiling and will for sure have you coming back for more.


Meet your guide at the hotel when the adventure starts. When all participants are gathered, we proceed to our expedition centre for trip information and distribution of snowmobiles as well as warm thermal clothes. Route of the day is always depending on weather and snow conditions. The aim of the adventure is to experience the magical polar night, the fun and mastering snowmobile driving, and to search for the best viewing point. We’ll stop to take pictures along the way and refresh ourselves with warm drinks.
