My husband and I booked the summer snowmobile trip for the last day of the season! Our guide was very knowledgable, friendly and made our once in a lifetime experience unforgettable.
We were given a safely briefing and lots of knowledge about the local area. Before we left to start the trip our guide ensured we all had the right equipment to keep us warm and safe.
We were lucky enough to spot an arctic fox and reindeer up close on our way to the start of the walk.
The walk up to the snowmobiles was beautiful and we even had time for some surprise fossil hunting which we really enjoyed! Our guide talked us through the history of the mines and about all the plants and fossils.
Once at the snowmobiles we had a thorough brief on how to use them. I was a bit nervous but our guide took her time to help me feel comfortable, after a short ride up to the top of the hill we took in the stunning views, ate a yummy sandwich and sampled a traditional hot drink. We had plenty of time to take pictures and just enjoy the peace and quiet!
This was an unforgettable trip and I would recommend to anyone wanting to explore Svalbard at a easy level!
Thank you to our guide and to Better Moments. Brilliant service and trip!

It has been a fantastic trip with Better Moments. The only thing there is to complain about is that it is expensive, but so is everything on Svalbard. And we saw Polarbears, so who cares? That is all that matters, right? ;o)

My friends and I took the Catch of the Day Tour - We didn't see any whales or polar bears (But we did see reindeer and a seal)- But had a great time. No one can ever guarantee widlife, but the Catch of the Day tour is about more than that. Our guides, Eli and Rene, were fun,friendly and very knowledgeable. The sights were great, the food they prepared was excellent. We had a great day.

We had a fantastic time doing the "Catch of the Day" trip back in September last year, and while we sadly didn't get to see any polar bears we were more than happy with the trip. Just being out in the untouched wilderness of Svalbard was fantastic, getting to see a whale was welcome surprise.

We'll no doubt use Better Moments again the next time we go to Svalbard.
