Ride an Arctic skidoo in 360

Skidoos are one of the main forms of transport in the Arctic. They allow researchers to travel between the research station and the field site with ease, transporting all the necessary equipment and any samples collected in the field.

As you head out to the field site in this preview video, take a look behind you to see the science settlement at Ny Alesund on Svalbard. Looking to your left, you will be able to see the waters of the Kongsfjorden, the sea inlet running alongside Ny Alesund.
