We were lucky getting this tour. We ordered from their website Thursday evening and we were told to be ready at 10 o'clock the day after. FatBike Spitsbergen picked us up at our hotel at 10 o'clock. Our guide was a young woman with lots of knowledge about Svalbard. Our trip lasted for 4 hours but was not physically hard.... More

Wrote an email and didn't get any answer in 4 days. Then booked the fat bike trip via telephone (several days ahead of the determined date and time). Then I received a cancellation half an hour before the trip which said 'Unfortunately everything is booked at the moment'. Very disappointing!

I tried this two years ago and loved it so much I booked again on my recent trip. The business has changed hands since then and I am pleased to say that the new owner is just as fabulous! Timon is super friendly and very knowledgeable about Svalbard. The bikes themselves are a real treat to ride and Timon will... More

The tour guide was very friendly, the bikes were unique and a lot of fun! It can definitely be tiring. I would recommend the 3 hour trip.

It is "just" a lot of fun. Do not expect long trips to the other fjords but for a trips in the surroundings of Longyearbyen it is great - and if your fitness and local wind allow you can make a lot of miles. If you like riding a standard bikes you definitely should try fatbike. Hint: try to avoid... More

This is a new company set up recently offering an incredible experience - FatBikes. They really are unlike any other bike I have been on. Our day trip was hosted by a very charming German girl, though I believe she was filling in for the owners who normally run it but were on holidays. I would recommend this tour for... More

If you want to try FatBike, and you want a activity that doesn't take all day, this is a fun thing to do. The guide (and owner) is nice and adaptable, and you decide the tempo of the cycling yourself.

We were 3 boys wanting to check out this new attraction during our weekend here in Spitzbergen. We booked online via mail and Karin set up a slot for us at 9 in the morning. It was going to be a 3 hour trip to Hiorthamn. The bikes are basically modified ordinary bicycles with huge wide tires so you can... More
