Your guide will pick you up at your hotel at 5 pm. You will have time to sit down with the guide, talk about the coming trip, possible routes and needed equipment. After the meeting we will give you warm clothing, like the overall and winter boots, and then head to the snowmobiles. Only the headlight from you snowmobile will be lighting the snow-covered mountainsides. We make a slow start to get used to driving the snowmobiles. After a short ride we arrive to Trapper’s Station, where we are welcomed by eager Alaskan Huskies. We meet the dogs and learn more about trapper’s history at Spitsbergen.
Dinner is served inside the warm trapper’s cabin where we share stories in an authentic athmosphere. Outside Longyearbyen we don’t have the light pollution, which give us a view to the polar sky and the stars sprinkled across. We also may experience the northern light dancing on the sky. Nights can be cold, but for that, we have warm expedition sleeping bags to keep you warm.
Note: The accommodation is shared in our wooden teepee at the Trapper’s Station.
Wake-up and breakfast is served. Svalbard in one of the few places you can spot northern lights at daytime. After breakfast, we explore the area with our snowmobiles. Snack is served, and there will be interesting photo stops during the trip.
Return to Longyearbyen around 1 pm.
