The 4,8 inches wide tires can handle snow, loose rocks, mud and sand. They are much more gentle to the ground than a normal mountainbike. In wintertime we ride almost everywhere, and in summertime the trips follow old roads, beaches and riverbeds.
We are a motivated and service oriented guide team that loves to take you out in the nature by bike. Either you book a trip in a small intimate group (max 4 participants) here on the webpage or you can take contact with us about a custom tour.
We are proud that we can also offer trips for families with our two extra children FatBikes.
Meeting point for all trips is usually in front of the Radisson Blu Polar Hotel. There your guide will pick you up and you walk together a couple of hundred meters to where the equipment is stored.
Remember to bring something to drink and some extra clothing to put on when we stop. It is possible to get bike bags which can be mounted to some of the bikes.

FatBike – Biking to Endalen and Mine 5 - FatBike Spitsbergen
Join us for an easy tour with history, geology, flora and WW II relicts. This is for those that wish a longer, but easy trip. It is possible to increase the biking difficulty.
In short: Easy to ride, Flora, Geology, Mining History, World War II.
On this trip you will get a good introduction to many interesting topics here on Svalbard on a relatively longer but very easy bike trip. There will be gravel road all the way and only a slight uphill in the end of the trip up to Mine 5. If you wish to test the bikes it would be possible to continue or ride parts of the trip in the riverbed.
We start in Longyearbyen at your hotel and ride out into Adventdalen. We will pass the dogyards where we can see Eider Ducks until end of June and the Polar Bear Sign. Then we continue past the lake "Isdammen" until we reach the old airport. Here we can experience some World War II history and walk down to the wreckage of an old Luftwaffe airplane. Then we head into Endalen (One-Valley) where we can investigate a part of the coal transportation system and discover many different plants. You can even have a look at what we call "Svalbards only forest" in the Tundra. At the end of the road we will find Mine 5, a now silent evidence of the once prospering coal mining activity on Svalbard. Finally, we return the same way as we came.
Fitness: Little fitness required. If you can ride a bike for some hours, you can do this!
During the trip we offer hot drinks and biscuits. We equip you with helmets, goggles and balaclavas. Dress for some physical activity and bring something extra warm to wear during the stop.Season: June – October and on special request
