Introduction

The snowmobile ride to Svea is a trip south of Longyearbyen. There is more wildlife activity in this area of Svalbard. Every year, the polar bear mom with cubs builds a den and hibernates over the dark winter. Van Mijenfjorden is a popular hunting ground for the polar bears because of the ring seal in the fjord.
There has been coal mining and human activity in the area since 1917. At most, there were 350 miners living and working in Svea.As a visitor in Svea, you will get the chance to visit the mines and get a glimpse of how it was to live and work in this remote Arctic outpost. You will also go inside one of the mines with a former miner for a two hour- guided tour and enjoy hot soup for lunch.
