About

Hike with a view! This trip offers different experiences from what you can get close to Longyearbyen. We use open polarcircel boats to take us across the Adventfjord to Revneset, from where we’ll start our hike.

Hike from sea to summit
The tour takes us up through the Louise Valley towards Caroline Valley. Here we see quite lush vegetation for Svalbard, providing good feed for our endemic reindeer. We will also see many remnants from the earliest mining efforts in Advent City. At the end of the valley we will head up onto the Forkastnings Mountain, where we can enjoy the incredible views over the whole Isfjord. The glaciers are laying like pearls on a string, from the Nordenskiöld glacier in the north, to the western bays ending with Trygghamna.

This is a reasonably demanding hike which covers about 10 kilometres with about 400 metres of elevation. On Forkastnings Mountain we will traverse a lofty shoulder, but the terrain is generally easy. The guide will bring a light lunch and warm drinks.

Included
- Transfer to and from accommodation in Longyearbyen.

- Guide with all necessary safety equipment

- Boat transfer to and from Revneset

- Floatation suit for boat trip

- Simple expedition lunch, warm drinks and biscuits
