ITINERARY

WHAT, WHERE & WHEN

DAY 1:

Your Arctic adventure begins in the small town of Longyearbyen, the northernmost permanently inhabited town in the world.

You’ll stay at Basecamp Hotel – a rustic yet modern take on the trapper’s traditional dwelling built from Russian driftwood.

In the evening, choose from one of Longyearbyen’s restaurants for dinner.

DAY 2:

Breakfast is served from 7am. At 10am you will meet your guide who will tell you all you need to know about the snowmobiles, clothing and the programme for the overnight tour. You can choose to drive your own snow mobile or share a snow mobile as a passenger.

Then it’s time to jump on the snow mobiles and head west towards Basecamp Isfjord Radio. You’ll make a number of stops along the way to delve into the nature and history of beautiful Spitsbergen. You’ll pass glaciers, snow-covered mountains and frozen fjords. You may see examples of Arctic wildlife such as reindeer, foxes and polar bears.

On arrival at Basecamp Isfjord Radio, the staff will welcome you with a delicious three course dinner. A sauna is also available to re-energise after your day on the snow mobiles. Settle into your luxury boutique hotel style rooms. It is difficult to believe that being this remote could be so comfortable! You’ll be over 90km from any civilisation and the chances of seeing the Northern Lights are high until mid-April. Accommodation in double rooms at Basecamp Isfjord Radio.

DAY 3:

After a substantial breakfast, it is once again time to head into the beautiful landscape of Svalbard. The guide chooses the day’s route depending on the weather and snow conditions. If the weather and snow conditions are favourable, you’ll ride through Barentsburg; the Russian settlement on Svalbard which is home to around 500 citizens from the Ukraine and Russia. There are no roads to Barentsburg, so travelling by snow mobile is essential during the long winter time.

Expedition lunch is shared en route before returning to Longyearbyen for your final night at the Basecamp Trappers Hotel.

DAY 4:

Transfer to the airport for your onward travel plans. We can tailor your stay with extra nights or a visit to another destination in Norway.
