Summer ATV Safari
with Svalbard Adventures
We dress warmly and drive our ATVs into Svalbard’s summer landscape, where deep valleys and high mountains are home to the Svalbard reindeer and polar fox.
We drive our Can-Am Outlander ATVs from Longyearbyen and into Advent Valley, making several stops along the way at historical sites where our guides will share their knowledge and personal insights about the nature, coal mines and culture.
Even though we are so far north, the rich fauna here means that wildlife sightings are also possible. It is not uncommon to see the Svalbard reindeer grazing on the tundra and in the summer months there is a rich and unique bird life.
We pass Longyearbyen’s old airport and visit our good friends in the dog yard of Svalbard Husky. There are many eager dogs waiting for our full attention. Maybe we meet Obelix, Nansen, Gandhi and Chaplin. The puppy litters are often named after films, books or series. We take a break here and serve coffee, tea, hot toddy and biscuits before we are heading back to Longyearbyen.
ATV Safari is available from when the snow melts until the Polar Night arrives in November. During the summer months from May to August, it’s light around the clock and you can experience the Midnight Sun. If you go on this tour in the autumn, the colourful tundra and snow-covered mountain peaks are not an uncommon sight.
Please note that all participants must hold a valid driving licence. As off-road motor traffic on ground that is not snow-covered is prohibited pursuant to the Svalbard Environmental Protection Act, we only drive our ATVs on roads where driving is permitted.
