What a wonderful moment!
Martin was an excellent guide and super helpful. I never cycled before and Martin took a lot of time to explain to me how a bike works. Wheels, chain, gears and how to manage this vehicle on snow.
I highly recommand Martin, his proffesionalism and historical explainations.

Had a excellent guide. Went on the 3 pm trip during easter with my two sons 18 and 21 years old. The trip was ment to be a 2 houre trip, but we all had such a great time and forgot all about time so we spent 3 1/2 houres soaking in impressions around longyearbyen. The guide was very knowledgeable and we had several stops where he told stories, history and all sorts of information. Definitely a highlight on our trip. The weather was sunny but of course freezing cold as expected.

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.

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 discuss with you what you want to see and what your level of riding is to tailor a great ride for you. Timon also brings the bikes to you which is super convenient.

This is definitely a unique experience and one not to be missed!

I was amazing to discover how easy it was to bike around with a fatbike.
We had a 4 hour tour biking to Endalen and Mine 5. It was easy to ride and the guide gave us stories about the flora, geology, mining history, and World War II.

It was a great tour with a funny and still knowledgeable guide. Enjoyed the full route, moreover, it was really astonishing to ride between 11am and noon in dark. :) These Fatbikes never get 'tyred' (:D), there were no issues, neither on really slippery surface (full, flat ice).

My friends and I are inexperienced and infrequent bikers. Throughout the tour, a friend was visibly struggling with her bike. She was peddling but the bike was not moving well. This was brought up to our guide multiple times but he did not do anything about it. The way back was fraught with strong winds and it took physical strength to get the bikes moving ahead. My friend finally gave up and we had to call a car back. This was when we realised that she was in the wrong gear the entire time, and it would have taken the guide a mere 1min to figure it out had he cared, and save her a lot of wasted energy. Disappointed.

We had a nice bike around Longyearbyen and out to the airport. The bikes were fine, none of us had tried fat bikes before, so that was fun. The guide was nice.
