Hello, my dear friends!
We are 2 young people from Russia, and going to see this beautiful piece of world at February 14.
We've already booked a hotel (Spitsbergen Hotel), so we don't need a couch. However, one of the purposes of your visit is Barentburg, the old Soviet mining town (of course, you know that).
The problem is that all tour providers makes it impossible to visit unless you have a valid driver license to ride a snowmobile. Unfortunately, we don't have ones.
So, the question is, is there any other way to get to Barentburg?
Like flying on heli (i heard that they exists on Svalbard) or look for a companion with 2-seated snowmobile?
Maybe you could help? We may pay some, if it is need in that.
Thanks for your answers in advance, and have a nice life!
