Within Longyearbyen, Barentsburg and Ny-Ålesund, there are road systems, but they don’t connect with each other. Trips between towns are usually undertaken by boat.In Winter land travel is usually undertaken by snow mobile. The only “highway” links the Longyearbyen airport to the Mine 7 via Longyearbyen. It is mostly not paved. There are some paved streets in Longyearbyen itself and many of the local residents tend to have cars. There are specific rules covering use of snow mobiles and you should check these with the rental company.
