“Small group, personalized service for a once in a lifetime adventure.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I am a frequent traveller and this trip was hands down the MOST amazing thing I have ever done.
I went on the snow mobile tour that goes to the ship in the frozen lake. The trip began with suiting up in snow gear with the help of Mrs Henningsen from the Henningsen family who are local legends in Longyearbyen. Mrs Henningsen made sure we would be warm enough and that everything fit properly, unlike other tour groups that show you to a room full of snowsuits and boots and you're on your own.
The trip itself was incredible and included spectacular scenery through frozen fjords, glaciers, wildlife and the famous Noorderlicht - the ship in the ice - where we stopped for a delicious hot lunch.
Spitsbergen Adventures specialize in small group travel which makes all the difference. Doreen, the tour leader, was able to adjust the driving to the ability of our group rather than taking a standard route. There were only four in our group who were all experienced snow mobile drivers which meant we could get off the beaten track and do some quite technical driving. We saw other groups with up to fifty people which is not the best way to see the arctic.
Online booking was super easy and Thomas was very responsive on email. He got back to me in a few hours of the original booking and answered all my questions promptly.
Doreen, the tour leader, was fantastic. She is a very experienced driver who knows Svalbard extremely well and I knew I was in good hands the whole day.
The tour is not cheap but the experience is unparalleled and is worth it 100x over. You will never forget it.

“Visiting Spitsbergen in safe hands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

From initial contact, through suggestions and recommendations, your tour planning, and finally greeting us at Longyearbyen Airport and guiding us in Spitsbergen, we could not have wished for a more professional service. And you're great fun too! We hope to see you again and we highly recommend you. Best wishes from the Furlong family.
