We had an amazing snowmobile trip to the East Coast of Svalbard, expertly guided by Aríen from Better Moments! If you're going to Svalbard, be sure to check these guys out! You will experiences worth remembering! Also, their service is 10/10. We were able to reschedule our trip to another day with better weather.

Due to changes in weather conditions, we had to adjust the trip accordingly. We went to Juvahytta, East Coast, Fredheim cabin. Although the weather was mixed and we had a lot of whiteout, our amazing guide Eli Ernst made trip an excellent experience. His falcon eyes spottet two polar bears, and he made an amazing dinner at Juva hytta. Would highly recommend him if you plan a trip to Svalbard

AMAZING trip to the east coast with our great guide Eli who found 2 polarbear for us which we viewed from a safe distance. This trip with Better Moments was the number 1 highlight of our 1 week Svalbard vacation. RECCOMENDED!

We were the luckiest girls on Earth since we got to do the snowmobile tour to East Coast with Arien, a great guide that a friend had recommended to us. Arien is a wonderful person and an extremely talented expedition guide. With her as our guide, we felt safe throughout the day. The tour started at 8:00 when she picked us up from our guest house, in total we were 7 people from 3 different groups. We had an excellent briefing to snowmobiling and even though 2 in our group were driving for the first time, we felt well informed about the special things to know about snowmobiles and the upcoming trip. Not all of us spoke Norwegian so the briefing presentation was conducted in English. The clothing and equipment you get from Better Moments is E X C E L L E N T. We have never had as much clothes on! The "Svalbard overall" is really warm and isolating and wind-proof, and our guide Arien gave us professional guidance on which layers to keep underneath. The neoprene neck warmer covered half of the face and we also received goggles, helmets and a biker wool hat, gloves, plus really warm and big winter shoes – to conclude, you have nothing to worry whichever the weather – Better moments will keep you warm! The snowmobiles seemed new and had all you could ask for: hand warmers for both the driver and passenger and even the accelerator button was heated. We drove 179 km in this East Coast trip and had so much luck with the sunny weather at the end of February. We stopped several times on the way there to admire the landscapes and Arien even told us lots of interesting facts about the glaciers. She used significantly extra time to spot polar bears for us but unfortunately we didn't see any – however we saw huge, fresh polar bear paw prints and since two days after the trip a polar bear attacked someone in the exactly same Mohnbukta area, in the end we were quite relieved we didn't see any! The food we received during the trip was decent and there was enough of it: peanuts and reindeer heart plus warm juice/coffee on the first snack break, and dry food that was cooked with boiling water and then served as very filling warm meal by the glacier on the East Coast. On the way back we had some foggy bits but Arien made sure everyone was with the group and kept checking regularly that everything was going well. One snowmobile had a technical issue which she managed to fix but in the end decided to tow the snowmobile home and handled the situation fast and professionally. Once we got back around 18:30, we were shocked about all the amazing landscapes and mind-blowingly awesome, incredible and unforgettable experience we had had together with Ariend and Better Moments. We are really thankful for this wonderful day that was worth every penny! Will never forget this day. Choose Arien and Better Moments – a decision you won't regret!
