A 10 hour trip with snowmobiles to the east coast of Spitsbergen. Did not see polar bears but other than that amazing scenery and a fun ride. Small group of 7 people with an excellent guide Torbjørn. Good standard on snowmobiles.

Great trip to the east coast of Spitsbergen. Great guide and we were lucky to see 2 polarbear tracks! No polar bear though. A small group with one guide like this, is recommended on such trips.
