Is that possible that such things as the Arctic and warmth, adventure and service, wilderness and comfort, Russia and Norway are combined in just one place? We are ready to prove that this place is Barentsburg, where you can get with a snowmobile trip.
Although sub-zero temperatures come to the archipelago in mid-September, the solid snowpack is formed only in January. Earlier the temperature jumps over 0° and the snow either melts or is blown away by the strong winds. The stabilized snowmobile transportation comes only in early February.
