Overview

Join us for a snowmobile safari to the closed Russian mining town Pyramiden, in the fjord of Billedfjorden. Pyramiden was previously the largest settlement on Svalbard with about 1500 inhabitants. The town was abandoned in 1998, but the buildings and infrastructure is still intact. We pass Tempelfjellet, a magnificent mountain formation, and the Nordenskiöld glacier. We have lunch outside in Pyramiden. On the way back home we take a coffee break onboard Noorderlicht, a Dutch sailing ship that is frozen in the ice of the Tempelfjord. Svalbard Booking is previously known as Svalbard Snoscooterutleie AS.

The second must do activity on Svalbard snow scooters in the dark, a 22 kilometer ride through the afternoon in the dark, fantastic fun speeds up to 60 kph, out to the arctic sea, a safe and fun trip

unfortunately there was no enough snow, so company decided to shorten our trip. We were warned, but they could have done more.

This is a safe way to hunt for the Aurora borealis - in the darker time of the year. But it also a safe and nice way of exploring the wild and rough landscape of Svalbard - from Longyearbyen. It is several stopovers to explore...More
