What can I say, these guys made my trip! I was here for only a week and did 3 trips with them! First trip was with Eivind and was an epic 10 hour ride on snowmobiles to the east coast - the weather was great fun, especially a whiteout! You really feel like you are on an epic expedition (you are!). You learn a lot about how to drive a snowmobile and also a lot about Longyearbyen and Svalbard with regular stops to explain the history as well as anecdotal stories that you won't find in any guide books!
The east coast is something out of a dream landscape! There were no bears on this trip so I booked to go again a few days later, this time with Magne. We got to the east coast and in the distance was a polar bear lying on the ice and fishing around for seals!! How Magne spotted it is amazing - it makes you realise that you would have no chance on your own. Not just about seeing a bear but about safely navigating your way there and back.
I also did a midnight sun scooter trip - very cool being out at 12am/1am in the full sunlight!
The other big plus of these trips is that the group size is really small - that alone is worth every penny - and you get a real personalised experience.
These guys really go out of their way to give you a great trip so the question is not if you are going to book a tour... But how many! :) and good luck in searching for the king of the arctic, their trip is the best chance you have without paying thousands and thousands for a cruise around the coastline of Svalbard.
Hope I get the chance to come back - thanks guys!!!
