How about doing your sightseeing on a four wheeler?

Welcome to the contrast-filled polar summer. In the spring, the birds occupy the area between SSU and the dog yard. Countless birds will nest here during the short, hectic summer, and it is also from here the guided tour with ATV starts. The midnight sun colors the mountains in beautiful, warm tones until mid-August, when autumn and the polar night gradually take over for the long, bright nights. In the autumn you get a completely different, but just as beautiful play of colors where the sunset paints the sky in beautiful pastels.

On the way into Adventdalen to Breinosa and mine 7, we stop at various cultural monuments that testify to a 100-year-long era of mining. Here you can also get acquainted with the Svalbard reindeer that often graze on the nutrient-rich soil in the swamp area along the road. The fox also sneaks in this area, hoping to find food among thousands of birds and eggs, and together this constitutes an important eco-community. Do not forget to look down, because even though Svalbard at first glance feels barren, the swamp area is often filled with beautiful, colorful, small plants.

Well up at the lookout point on Breinosa, we enjoy the view towards the Isfjord before we drive back towards the city. On the way home, we stop at Svalbard Husky to greet a group of energic and social sled dogs, who are happy to receive cuddles from their guests.
