The goal for this tour is Camp Barentz, which is located just 10 kilometres outside of Longyearbyen at the foot of the Mine 7 mountain. This is a snowmobile tour which suits those with no experience, or with young children. We will head off at a relaxed tempo and often stop to hear about the wilderness we are driving through. This area is steeped in history - with sites pertaining to mining, World War II and early scientific research to be found.
The Svalbard reindeer is a common sight in this area, and occasionally the Svalbard ptarmigan also makes an appearance. These animals are endemic to this area and are only found on Svalbard. We will make a stop at Camp Barentz where our guide will serve us warm drinks inside Barentz Hus, before we head back towards Longyearbyen.
