About

We start by moving towards the mountain Sarkofagen. On each side of this colossus, we have some exciting glacier systems with morraines and meltwater channels. We will explore these as we make our way to the top of Sarkofagen at 500 meters above sea level. Here we'll enjoy a great view of Longyearbyen and Isfjorden before we make our descend safely back to town.
