About Spitsbergen
On Spitsbergen you never know how the weather will turn out. But one thing is for sure; it’s going to be an adventure!

You might be driving your snowmobile somewhere out in the wilderness of Spitsbergen, with blue sky above and the sun shining on your face, when suddenly you find yourself up in a whiteout in the next valley.
