Shh! What’s that sound? Nothing. It is just arctic silence. As you press the gas, your snowmobile silently starts moving, while it lights up the dark polar night. No sound of a roaring engine. The only thing to be heard is "the Arctic silence". The sound of absolutely nothing.
It is time to experience the fascinating polar night in a whole new way – with an electric snowmobile!
Aurora all day
Our electrical snowmobile northern lights safari is one of the most exotic ways to experience Svalbard. In a silent stream of light, we drive through the Advent Valley, in search of the northern lights. Here it is only us and the never-ending darkness of the polar night.
Far away from the city with all its artificial lights, the chances of seeing northern light is greater. From early November to the end of January it is possible to see them around the clock – even in the middle of the day. During the day the northern lights are a little fainter than in the night, but with a more reddish tint it is a mesmerizing sight!
Our new snowmobiles run with electrical engines that are completely quiet. This makes them less disruptive to the wildlife, compared to ordinary snowmobiles. So, as well as looking to the sky for northern lights, remember to look around you. We often see the Svalbard reindeer, ptarmigans and polar foxes on these trips.
