Snowmobile safari to Barentsburg

with Svalbard Adventures

1 Feb 2021 – 15 May 2021
Monday – Sunday09:00-17:00

You will be picked up at your accommodation and dressed up with good, warm clothes and shoes. We will have a briefing about snowmobiling before we head out to the Russian mining community of Barentsburg, located in Grønnfjorden.

Join us on a snowmobile journey through the wilderness to the Russian settlement of Barentsburg. This town has the second largest population on Svalbard, a coal mining community of around 350 people. In Barentsburg we take the time to explore, with many interesting sights to see, and we are served with a Russian lunch at the hotel or the brewery.

Our route for this day-trip takes us through fantastic and diverse nature; through huge valleys, over mountain sides, and up snow-covered glaciers. Our friendly and professional guides have all the experience and drive to make this an unforgettable experience, while remaining safe in such a wild and unforgiving environment.

We recommend that everyone drives their own snowmobile; this is easier than driving with a passenger. This trip is dependent on weather conditions, as well as a minimum number of participants.

Our snowmobiles have a industry leading fuel economy and are therefore the one of the most environmentally friendly snowmobiles on the market.

Included:

Transport to and from your hotel

Touring snowmobile and fuel

A snowmobile suit, boots, mittens, helmet, goggles and balaclava

A hot lunch, hot drinks and biscuits

Search and Rescue Insurance

A local and experienced guide with a snowmobile and safety equipment

Recommended:

We recommend you wear warm clothing

On colder days an extra set of gloves as a liner to our mittens

A mid-layer consisting of a sweater and pants in fleece or wool is advisable

Down jackets, or other heavily insulated clothing, are not recommended beneath the snowmobile suit

Our snowmobiles do not have a storage compartment, so a small backpack could be useful for cameras, extra jackets, and other small items

Essential:

A base-layer of wool or an equivalent is essential

A valid driving license for a car or motorcycle must be carried during the whole trip to drive a snowmobile. The passenger does not need to have a driver’s licence.

Total distance: Approximately 120km Pickup: At your hotel at approximately 09:00, every day
