About

From Longyearbyen, you see the majestic mountain Hiortfjellet. Many feel attracted to this mountain and this is your opportunity to ascend it. But it is a tough trip. First, we need to get across the fjord in kayaks, then we scale a 1000 meter high mountain. On the summit of Hiortfjellet we are rewarded in a great view. Your nature guide will give you all necessary safety instructions. You do not need any previous kayak experience to join this trip. The trip is demanding.

Important information:
You must be able to swim, but no prior kayaking experience needed. The trip can be strenuous on arms and shoulders. We use double kayaks.

If you have a physical disability, please reach out to us for the possibility of a private tour.
